In the last decade, we have seen the impact of exponential advances in technology on the way we work, shop, communicate, and think. At the heart of this change is our ability to collect and gain insights into data; and comments like "Data is the new oil" or "we have a Data Revolution" only amplifies the importance of data in our lives. Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web said, "Data is a precious thing and will last longer than the systems themselves." IBM recently stated that people create a staggering 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every day (that's roughly equivalent to over half a billion HD movie downloads). This information is generated from a huge variety of sources including social media posts, digital pictures, videos, retail transactions, and even the GPS tracking functions of mobile phones.
