Think Big Data is here?  Just wait – it’s only beginning.

According to IDC, the digital universe is doubling in size every two years, and will reach 44 trillion gigabytes by 2020. Estimates and projections vary, but it has been stated that 90 percent of the data existing worldwide today was created in the last two years and that every two days more information is generated than was from the dawn of civilization until 2003. That’s a lot of information.

Information Governance (IG) is "control of information to meet all legal, regulatory, risk, and business demands." IG programs seek to maximize information value while reducing associated risks and costs. With the onlsalught of Big Data, IG programs are increasingly critical to CIO success. Back in 2012 Gartner predicted that by 2016, 1 in 5 CIOs in regulated industries will lose their job due to failed IG programs. http://www.gartner.com/newsroom/id/1898914
