On a global scale, people are creating more information every day then was created in total prior to 2003.
Furthermore, Dominic Pollard, editor at the Big Data Insight Group, suggests that the mushrooming of data assets in recent years is just the tip of the iceberg and is likely to keep increasing exponentially.
However, while data assets increase, businesses should not have a problem when it comes to managing and archiving their information.
"While we can only assume that even more sources and methods of data collation will materialise all of the time, we can also be confident that storing, accessing and analysing these mounds of data will improve more or less at a similar pace," Mr Pollard said.
He added that the scalability on offer through the cloud particularly helps people and organisations get a firm hold on their assets so that they don't "drown in a sea of information".
The cloud has moved from being a technology that many are sceptical of, to a useful and essential business tool over the last few years, as security concerns have been put to rest.
