The exponential growth of Big Data is unprecedented and is matched only by its enormous potential to change the way we all live, work and think. Every day, 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are created. By 2015 it is estimated that the volume of digital content in the world will grow to a staggering 8 billion terabytes.
Big Data is more than simply a matter of size. It presents an opportunity to find key insights and emerging trends in data, to make businesses more agile, board room decisions better informed, and answer questions that have previously been considered unanswerable.
