"Big data": a buzz word or something that makes sense for my company?
From Data to Big Data
Do you have any idea about the volume of data that we deal with – in a way or another – every day?
Altogether, we produce more information every minute than all the data which has been produced from the beginning of time until 2000… every minute!
Indeed every 60 seconds, we produce more than 100.000 tweets, we update more than 700.000 status on Facebook, we share more than 11.000.000 instant messages, we introduce more than 700.000 searches on Google, we send more than 170.000.000 emails, we upload more than 300 hours of video on YouTube, etc., etc.
And those figures have been collected some months ago, so it should be more today.
It seems incredible but that’s our present world, dealing with more and more information every day. And if we consider the development of IoT (Internet of Things), the quantity of data that will be produced by machines will exponentially increase the quantity yet produced.
In such a world, we can definitively talk about big data. In the last 15 years, IT has transformed a world of data to a world of big (enormous, gigantic…) data.
It seems far from my reality. Indeed, in my day to day life, I receive, read, analyse, keep for later and even delete lots of electronic documents (emails, presentations, word documents, spreadsheets, news …) and physical documents (letters, invoices, contracts, orders, magazines, newspapers …), all about various topics: commercial, finance, HR … which is nothing compare to this ocean of big data.
My 100 emails, 5 spreadsheets, 3 presentations, 15 Word documents, 8 letters... that I receive in every average working day are no big data! No relevance! Really?
