IDC predicts that our global datasphere – the digital data we create, capture, replicate and consume – will grow from approximately 40 zettabytes of data in 2019 to 175 zettabytes in 2025 (with one zettabyte equaling one trillion gigabytes).
Not only will the amount of IoT-generated and real-time data balloon, but so will the amount of data created and managed by enterprises. By 2025, nearly 60% of the 175 zettabytes of existing data will be created and managed by enterprises versus consumers (compared to just 30% created and managed by enterprises in 2015).What will our global datasphere, and our ability to manage it, look like by 2025?
