The Internet processed more than a zettabyte (one million petabytes) of data in 2016, and this is expected to double approximately every three years. Meanwhile, several more zettabytes are being handled internally by enterprise IT departments and third-party datacenters How and why is all this data being generated? How can enterprises and organizations get a handle on it? What can and should they be doing with it? How will we be able to handle data's continued rapid growth? What implications does all of this data have for the state of the world, and for the chances of all nations to improve themselves socioeconomically with it? This session will review these questions and provide an outline of how enterprises, organizations -- and entire nations -- can improve themselves during the ongoing Zettabyte Era.
