Time Value of Data
sponsored by SGI

In 1964, The New Statesman magazine first used the term Information Explosion to describe what was thought at the time to be a dramatically increasing deluge of data, and the problems that it created. Then, of course, the flood was mainly data on paper, and the increasing proliferation of documents in all industries was becoming a nightmare to manage.

Thus the information technology era brought a welcomed relief from the problems associated with sorting through, finding, protecting and archiving an increasingly large mountain of paper-based information.

Or did it?

All of the printed material on earth is estimated to be about 200 petabytes (200,000 terabytes) of data. That is a lot of information and a lot of data to manage. But it is dwarfed by the amount of data that is generated worldwide with information technology today.

Read this white paper to learn more about how to survive and thrive in the age of the Information Explosion.
