Healthcare a Major Theme as IBM Delivers Big Data Message at IOD 2012

Despite mounds of quantitative and qualitative data that show exponential, unsustainable storage growth; a stricter regulatory environment on the horizon; and increased risk of adverse litigation judgments as well as higher costs, a myriad of surveys indicate that perhaps only a 1/4 of organizations are confident they have the problem under control—and that may be optimistic.

Most users are overwhelmed with the prospect of unsustainable growth of unstructured content in the form of documents, images, emails, social media and other forms of messaging.
