The collection of data generated in various information and communication systems, nowadays takes place in many different ways. This allows information to be generated through the use of mobile devices, through pictures of video recordings, or by leaving comments in social networks. In addition, the embedded sensors and GPS data from vehicles also provide information which can flow into the data analysis.

From these data collection activities, both structured and unstructured data are often collected, processed, and analyzed in real-time. This is done by so-called the Big Data analytics systems. The results from Big Data analytics are able to show not only the historical facts, but also the prediction of possible subsequence - predictive analytics.
