Every day, Industry creates 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. This data comes from everywhere: sensors used to gather climate information, posts to social media sites, digital pictures and videos, purchase transaction records, and cell phone GPS signals to name a few. This data is ‘Big data.’
Big Data refers to data sets that are too large to be processed and analyzed by traditional IT technologies.
Records and data exist in a myriad of electronic devices from mobile communications to surveillance cameras to emails to web sites to till receipts; it can combine daily news, social media feeds and videos.
Retailers can exploit the data to track sales and consumer behaviour, in store and online; health professionals and epidemiologists trying to predict the spread of disease combine data from health services, border agencies and a variety of other sources. Read More…
Bigger big data spending
IDC predicts spending of more than $14 billion on big data technologies and services or 30% growth year-over-year, “as demand for big data analytics skills continues to outstrip supply.” The cloud will play a bigger role with IDC predicting a race to develop cloud-based platforms capable of streaming data in real time. There will be increased use by enterprises of externally-sourced data and applications and “data brokers will proliferate.” IDC predicts explosive growth in big data analytics services, with the number of providers to triple in three years. 2014 spending on these services will exceed $4.5 billion, growing by 21%.
