Johannesburg - The impact of connected devices within businesses will certainly bring more automation and autonomy, but the IoT (Internet of Things) also heralds the creation of more data.
Digital Universe studies predicts that by this year (2020), the amount of information produced by the IoT will account for about 10% of all data on Earth.
This enormous growth in data creation is bringing about many important changes to IT and data management. One of the more significant struggles is brought about by the increased usage of non-traditional types of data. This includes unstructured data, streaming data, and different forms of database systems to handle the increased volume.
Although structured data remains the bedrock of the information infrastructure in most organizations, unstructured data is growing in importance. Unstructured data consists of things like images, videos, documents, e-mail and text messages, and really, anything that is not a traditional number or short character string.
“The common misconception that unstructured data will take over and structured data solutions will die out. While it is undeniably true that unstructured data has seen a massive upsurge in growth in the last few years, any and all forms of analytics simply cannot function without a relational engine. We are now focusing on the newer technologies that’s pursued in the business intelligence space such as machine learning and predictive analytics” – William Brandon Manager at DBA Architect.
It is important to note that unstructured data accounts for about 90% of all digital information according to International Data Corp. This means that new and different methods of manipulating and storing unstructured data are required, because traditional methods used by legacy database systems don’t work very efficiently with it.
The number one challenge for business decision-makers is the lack of business competency to deal with this sort of data that is messy, diverse and at a substantially large size.
