Strategies for Managing the Oncoming Tsunami of Data

May 24, 2017  1PM ET / 10AM PT

Over the next 8 years, the amount of data created per year will increase 10X to over 160 zettabytes – with 95% originating from the world of IoT – according to a new IDC report. However, only 15% of that data can be stored. So what happens to the rest? How can such massive volumes be managed?

With this data deluge on the horizon, now is the time to architect for this new reality. The current strategies of Big Data storage and micro-batch processing and analysis, while important, will no longer be sufficient to handle such extreme data volumes, or make sense of it.

Join Alex Woodie, Editor-in-Chief of Datanami, and Steve Wilkes, founder and CTO of Striim, for an in-depth look at some strategies that companies can begin to implement today to address these needs. Learn ways to start the migration toward a data architecture capable of handling the oncoming tsunami of data through a “streaming-first” approach. Topics including data processing and integration at the Edge; migrating existing systems and processes toward a streaming architecture; and strategies for avoiding data storage altogether, without losing information or intelligence.
