The world is producing a ‘tsunami’ of digital data every single second of every single day and harnessing the potential power of all this data is fast becoming one of the biggest industries on the planet.
Big Data, as it is know, is creating a market that will grow from $3.2 billion in 2010 to $16.9 billion in 2015, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 40% or about seven times that of the overall information and communications technology market.
Big Data’s ultimate value lies in generating higher quality insights that enable better decision making. Better and faster decisions result in increased productivity, more revenues and in many cases a better quality of life for people.
A free event on 19th September 2012 at the Northern Ireland Science Park called Big Data: Big Bubble? has assembled a panel of Big Data experts “who will show you the implications of this digital tsunami in selected industry sectors: security, healthcare, telecoms, finance and security”.
