The Explosive Growth in the volume of Digital Data will demand more IT Professsional

According to IDC Digital Universe Study, by 2020:

1.  the digital universe will total 35 zettabytes (in 2011 it was 1.8 zettabytes)
2.  organizations will deal with 50 times more information
3.  information will be stored in 75 times more “containers” (files, objects, devices, etc.)
4.  digital society will deal with 10 times more servers: both physical and virtual
5.  just 50% more IT professionals will deal with all these advances by the end of the decade

regarding to what was said above there are two news: good and bad

GOOD: You as an IT professional surely will be employed and very popular
BAD:You will be very busy 🙂

As a student of the Computer Engineering Department at the Qafqaz University be in a hurry to become one of those demanded and busy IT Professionals.

P.S. – 1 zettabytes (ZB) = 1000exabytes (EB) = 1000000petabytes (PB) = 1000000000terabytes (TB) = 1000000000000gigabytes (GB) = 1000000000000000000000B
