Every day, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data…so much that 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone.
Data growth, speed and complexity are being driven by the deployment of billions of intelligent sensors, devices and platforms that are transmitting data (popularly called the Internet of Things). The data generated is known as Big Data.
Big data is more than just a large data collection and storage management challenge. Enterprises that can make sense of it will be the big winners in this information economy. As the saying goes, “information is power”.
