Smart Data

Smart data is digital information that is formatted, it can be acted upon at the collection point before being sent to a downstream analytics platform for further data consolidation and analytics.
The term smart data is often associated with the Internet of Things (IoT) and the data that smart sensors embedded in physical objects produce.
The label smart is directly related to a data entry point being intelligent enough to make some types of decisions on incoming data immediately, without requiring processing power from a centralized system.
