As the capabilities of digital devices soar and prices plummet, sensors and gadgets are digitizing vast amounts of information that was previously unavailable.

According to recent analyst reports, enterprise data growth over the next 5 years is estimated at 650 percent. Estimates are that 80 percent of this data will be unstructured, generated from a variety of sources such as blogs, videos, email, etc. In fact, 70% of this unstructured data is stale after 90 days.

With this ongoing shift in the market, companies and governments need to be able to analyze and extract intelligence from information, irrespective of where data resides, in real time — without being bound by a particular system or platform.
