Is there a name for this sort of construction in English? It's an extremely difficult thing to Google.
Specifically, I would like to be able to draw a distinction between "Big Data" as used in the sentence
"Preventing leaks of personal information has become a top priority for Big Data."
(where it means something along the lines of "the most prominent businesses which primarily deal with the acquisition, storage, and usage of data as a commodity, analogous to "Big Oil" for the biggest companies in the oil industry)
...and "Big Data" in the sentence
"Software used for Big Data analysis typically uses a map-reduce pipeline."
The latter is an industry-specific term, which typically conjures images of Hadoop distributed file systems and clusters of commodity hardware. "Big Data" in this sense specifically refers to the volume and variety of the information itself, and not the companies which handle it.
I have no idea how to even tag this question, so any help is appreciated.
