Buried in Big Data

I have a new blog post up at KnowledgeLake – Buried in Big Data.

I’ve seen references to recent Gartner reports that paint a challenging landscape for the future of content management for companies of all sizes. In one report, Gartner states

…by 2016, 20% of CIOs in regulated industries will lose their jobs for failing to implement the discipline of information governance successfully.

and in another Gartner shows part of the problem

…employees within an organisation generate more than 3GB of data each year and this is set to increase by more than 600% over the next five years. The effect of this is that 30% of a typical working day will be spent looking for information or documents, meaning a company with 1000 employees could spend around R40 million in lost productivity.
