IDC Data Age 2025 study shows that about 25 Zettabytes of data exists in the world (datasphere) today. That’s 27.49 trillion Gigabytes!
IDC also predicts that data creation is on a sharp curve up with embedded data from security cameras, smart meters, wearables, medical implants etc. making up 20% by 2025. In most cases, data is accessed by a web browser using a URL. This makes web extraction tools even more valuable.
