In today's ultra-competitive marketplace, insights and disclosure have never been more important for buyers and sellers. The synthesizing of data becomes increasingly complex as data proliferates.

In an article as far back as 2010 in The Economist, this observation was made:

"The amount of digital information increases tenfold every five years. ...By 2013 the amount of traffic flowing over the internet annually will reach 667 exabytes, according to Cisco."

Today the concept is "Big Data," and it is changing dramatically right before our eyes. Consider the following that happens each minute:

  • Facebook users share nearly 2.5 million pieces of content.
  • Twitter users tweet nearly 300,000 times.
  • Instagram users post nearly 220,000 new photos.
  • YouTube users upload 72 hours of new video content.
  • Apple users download nearly 50,000 apps.
  • Email users send over 200 million messages.
  • Amazon generates over $80,000 in online sales.
