Last decade has seen an exponential increase in the data being generated from across traditional as well as non-traditional data sources. International Data Corporation (IDC)report says that, data generated in the year 2020 alone will be a staggering 40 zettabytes which would constitute a 50-fold growth from 2010. The data generated per second has increased to 2.5 Quintillion bytes and with the advent of latest innovations like the Internet of Things; it is poised to grow even more rapidly.
