Big Data applications are widely used in many fields; Artificial Intelligent, Marketing, Commercial applications, and Health care, as we have seen the role of Bid Data in the Convid-19 pandemic. Therefore, to ensure that the Big Data applications are used and generated in good quality for their consumers. It is important to have quality factors that the Big Data applications should satisfy, quality frameworks that applied and tested the quality factors for the Big Data application. However, the quality measurement process has some challenges to be applicable and trustworthy. In this research, we have listed different quality factors and dimensions and quality frameworks that are commonly used to measure the Big Data quality measurement. Also, we listed the frequent challenges that the researchers and data scientists are faced through the Big Data quality measurement process.
