V Power and big data

Even a decade back, when you say mention the alphabet V one thinks of powerful diesel engines. Today, some say data is the new oil and big data is best understood by the V words - Volume, Velocity, Variety. According to this IBM page these are not enough. Apparently, business still dont trust the output from any appliance or architecture that deals with these three V things. So they introduce a new V word - Veracity. With Veracity, you can establish or frame what you want from big data, and more importantly decide to believe it. Fair enough! Now, Evan Quinn of ESG Global, an IT research and advisory company, has added 2 new Vs to the string - Visualization and Value. Now that is a V6 engine!
