BIG DATA A BLESSING AND A CURSE If you are from the generation familiar with the terms MegaByte, GigaByte, and TerraByte, prepare yourselves for a whole new vocabulary, the likes of which your predecessors probably could not imagine. Soon terms like PetaByte, ExaByte, and ZettaByte will be as common s the aforementioned, with benefits and difficulties to match their magnitude. IBM claims 90% of the world's data has been accumulated in the last 2 years. If that is true, those math savvy reader can imagine how steep the exponential curve must be with regard to the weight of data, the enormity of what's coming.
