Bringing big data to the Enterprise

What is big data?

Everyday, we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data–so much that 90% of the data in the world today has been created in the last two years alone. This data comes from everywhere: from sensors used to gather climate information, posts to social media sites, digital pictures and videos posted online, transaction records of online purchases, and from cell phone GPS signals to name a few. This data is big data.

Big data spans three dimensions: Variety, Velocity and Volume.

Big data is more than a challenge; it is an opportunity to find insight in new and emerging types of data, to make your business more agile, and to answer questions that, in the past, were beyond reach. Until now, there was no practical way to harvest this opportunity. Today, IBM’s platform for big data opens the door to a world of possibilities, giving organisations a solution that is designed specifically with the needs of the enterprise in mind:
