How Big Is Your Data?
Since the 1980s, the world's information storage capacity has roughly doubled every 40 months. The primary driver of the data trend are digital technologies, which gather data at far more touch points than ever before, including web and social media (visitor logs; social graph), mobile phones (apps, location-sharing), GPS devices (cameras, navigation), RFID tags (retail), and other wireless sensor networks. Databases have become so large that manipulating them has become a major challenge, propelling technologies that distribute data processing, such as Apache’s Hadoop. The fields of analytics, business intelligence and data discovery are seeing explosive growth as marketers and scientists alike tap into vast repositories of information to quench their data-seeking thirst.
