Big Data 
from 
Small Places 
How our devices produce 
so much data 
(Dr. Seuss Style)
Inside our gadgets and gizmos 
that fill our heart with glee 
Exists an entire world 
rather difficult to see
Crack open our devices 
and there you will find 
Doodads and doohickeys and 
thingamajigs of all kind
These are the things 
that give life to our stuff 
Understanding how it all works 
well that can be tough
Electronics and sensors, 
motors and gears 
Designing it all 
that often takes years
Something so important 
it’s quite the surprise ! 
There is something else in there 
you can’t see with your eyes
Software 
Lots and lots of software 
Seriously, it’s everywhere
All of that code 
in each apparatus 
Controls everything 
and updates the status
These little parts 
make mountains of data. 
It starts really early, 
way before Beta
It starts in the lab, 
when it's first being made 
It’s just gotta work 
It can’t be delayed
Doohickey data 
Thingamajig data 
Doodad data 
Software data
This data is used 
to find every glitch 
to make sure it works 
to check every switch
The more complex the gizmo 
the more data we will need 
to find all the bugs 
to finish with speed
Once it all works 
it doesn’t stop there 
More have to be built 
for Finley, Jordan, Gracen, even Aunt Claire
Jillions are made 
but we cannot be done 
until data is used 
to test every one
Doohickey data 
Thingamajig data 
Doodad data 
Software data
If we assemble it wrong 
or have one bad part 
That data will tell us 
why it won’t start
Once at our house 
it doesn’t stop there 
The data keeps growing 
through the wear and the tear
Every press of a button 
Every blink of a light 
Every touch of the screen 
Every single night
Doohickey data 
Thingamajig data 
Doodad data 
Software data
Once in your pocket 
your gadget may break 
It’s gotta be fixed 
How long will it take?
That data will tell us 
what went askew 
And show the repairman 
just what to do
Such a crazy world 
inside each device 
It works like magic 
and runs so precise
What brings our gadgets to life 
and makes them so smart? 
The software's the brains and 
the hardware's the heart
