The network of connected devices commonly called the Internet of Things is poised to drive data growth to stratospheric levels. Our ability to wield analytics on these big, fast, and diverse data will determine whether we can successfully harness the IoT to improve livelihoods and boost bottom lines, or whether we’ll crumble under the weight of the new data. If you thought today’s data levels were big or fast or diverse, you haven’t seen anything yet. Analysts say the amount Read more…
