Good question.  Neither Sherlock Holmes nor any competent scientist,
engineer, physician, forensic investigator, intelligence analyst, etc,
would accept data at face value without asking about the provenance,
the methods of derivation, and the people who derived and verified it.

I hope I'm wrong, but so far I have not seen "Big Data" & "provenance" used in close proximity.
