Q: How are the new economics of Big Data affecting the enterprise?
A: The cost of data [is] dropping dramatically. In 1983, for one dollar you’d be able to store about three-and-a-half logs of data, and when we [checked] a week ago, you could actually store, for a dollar, about 35 billion logs of data. And if I were to check again right now, that number would probably already be up to 50 billion. … We’ve gone from a mode where we sample a little bit of information and then extrapolate what we think actually happened from that information. … In a world where you can extremely efficiently log everything that has actually happened, you can see what actually happened—you don’t have to extrapolate anything, and you can analyze everything.
