Big data is an assemblage of large and complex data that is difficult to process with the traditional DBMS tools. The scale, diversity, and complexity of this huge data demand new analytics techniques to extract useful and hidden value from it. Data must be prepared before starting mining as real data is sometimes not suitable for mining, and poor quality finishes in poor results. This paper presents the needs, various problems, and solutions for the preprocessing of big data.
