Data aggregation is a type of data and information mining process where data is searched, gathered and presented in a report-based, summarized format to achieve specific business objectives or processes and/or conduct human analysis.
Data aggregation may be performed manually or through specialized software.
Data aggregation is a component of business intelligence (BI) solutions. Data aggregation personnel or software search databases find relevant search query data and present data findings in a summarized format that is meaningful and useful for the end user or application.
Data aggregation generally works on big data or data marts that do not provide much information value as a whole.
Data aggregation's key applications are the gathering, utilization and presentation of data that is available and present on the global Internet.
