Each day we create 2.5 quintillion bytes of data from a variety of sources -- from climate information, to posts on social media sites, and purchase transaction records to medical images. This data is Big Data and has become a big deal.  At IBM we believe that Big Data and analytics is a catalyst to help clients become more competitive and grow their business. IBM is helping clients harness Big Data to gather insights and act on the insights to transform their business.
