In the last 15 years, the evolution of data has made leaps and bounds, and has shown no signs of letting up. In fact, it’s exponentially growing.
In 2000, computers had the processing power of an insect brain. Fast forward to 2020, computers will have the processing power of a human brain. And by 2040, a single computer will have the processing power of every brain on Earth. And what’s driving this continuous evolution of data is device connectivity.
In her keynote from Stream Conf 2016, Kira Makagon, EVP of Innovation at RingCentral, discusses managing big data in real time. Her talk includes how her company captures, examines and uses the information produced across their communication network, and how this is just one part of a larger trend towards harnessing big data.
