What Happens in the Internet Each Minute in 2016? You Have No Idea: eDiscovery Trends

There’s a Don Henley song titled New York Minute where “In a New York minute…Everything can change”.  In an Internet minute in 2016, data can explode throughout the world.

I love infographics and not just because they make my job easier because I don’t have to write as much.  :o)  The graphic above (copyright by Excelacom, thanks to Stephen’s Lighthouse for the tip) gives you a sense of what happens within the internet in a typical minute.  And, this just covers the most popular apps and mechanisms for communicating and sharing information – there’s a lot more happening each minute that isn’t covered here.

In this era of Big Data, if you’re responsible for information governance in your organization, statistics like those shown above might cause you to lose some sleep.  Sorry about that.  But, they do help convey the increasing challenge of managing all of the data within an organization.  Maybe these are good numbers to reference when you’re pushing for that raise?  You’re welcome.  :o)

So, what do you think?  How have the challenges of Big Data affected your organization?  Please share any comments you might have or if you’d like to know more about a particular topic.
