Talking Points (scroll down) The connected world is piping in data from all over, leading to a surge in data volumes. IDC looked at the volume of data out in the market, where we are all headed, and the importance of establishing an intelligence strategy within organizations. In a single year…between 2006 and 2007…the number of exabytes of data captured and replicated nearly doubled. And, for the first time, the amount of data being generated surpassed the ability to store that data. This data deluge continues to accelerate…with a projected 1800 exabytes captured and replicated in 2011. Organizations cannot just accumulate data any longer. They need a strategy to make sense of all the data that is literally rushing by.
