The “Internet of Things” is by its very nature, scope, and size one example of a Big Data source. This presentation will describe how The Open Group’s evolving Quantum Lifecycle Management (QLM) standard coupled with its complementary Universal Data Element Framework (UDEF) standard help to bring order to the terminology chaos that faces Big Data implementations. Together, the combined standards provide a consistent method for tagging and exchanging information about anything (the Internet of Things) that has a life cycle.
