  • Streamed
  • Semi-structured
  • Non-standard

Semi-structured data:
  • Data not yet organized into repositories such as a database
  • But has associated metadata
  • Easier to process than raw data

Non-standard data:
  • Examples are text, music, pictures

People also say that the features of IoT data are three V's: volume (high), velocity (high), and variety (high).
