Data is the new oil, how often have you heard that? That quote was written back in 2006 by Mathematician, Clive Humby. How true that has become. Back in 2006 it was estimated that the total worldwide data store was 160 exabytes. By 2023, it is estimated that 423 exabytes will be created daily! For those that don’t know what an exabyte of data is – a lot. Or, you can find out exactly how much here.
So what, you may say, how does that affect me? Well to be honest unless you are a data analyst or a business director, probably not a lot. However, in today’s business world directors and managers want information and the only way to get that information is from data.
Data generally comes in two forms. Structured and Un-Structured.
This would normally be held in a software package such as CRM or Sage. In this form, it can be interrogated or queried to provide reports or as we would say analytics. From here you can them make informed business decisions.
This is anything else in your business and probably makes us the majority of data that your business stores. Because there is no structure, it will be held on a server or in a filing cabinet and forgotten about. But this data is very valuable and if you could query it, you would find out a lot more about how your business operates and who is doing what.
