Gigabytes, terabytes, petabytes, zettabytes: What’s up with Big Data?
October 19, 2011
Hosted by Bonnie D. Graham
Big Data. The world of Three V’s. Gartner describes “big data” as a three-dimensional data growth model: Volume of data; Velocity or speed of data in/out; and Variety of data types and sources. When we do the math, “big” typically ranges from a few dozen terabytes to multi-petabytes or more in a single data set. The bottom line: Big data is waaayyy too much for common software tools to efficiently capture, manage and process within a tolerable length of time. This is a job for game-changing solutions and exceptional technologies. What does big data mean to you and your business? What kinds of data do you need to care about – social data, sentiment analysis, RFID and more? What does your data look like today and what will it look like tomorrow? And how do you turn your data into usable information? Pour a fresh cup of Joe, Earl or OJ and join us for food for thought: Big Data - The Big Picture.
