"Big Data" and the Future of the Information Economy

"Big Data" and the Future of the Information Economy

We find out how innovative organizations are beginning to harness the power of "Big Data"...

It's a mountain of raw data, growing bigger every time a credit card is swiped or a photo uploaded to the web. Last year, more than 13 exabytes of data-- that's 13 quintillion bytes (a 13, followed by 18 zeros) -- was saved on servers, computers, and mobile devices around the world. We explore how innovative organizations are beginning to harness the power of "Big Data" and whether the IT sector can help drive a broader economic recovery in the United States.
