2007: Digital information accounted for
greater than 93% of all stored information,
and for the first time, more digital information was being created than could be stored.
2013: Digital growth is accelerating,
accompanied by problems of storage media decay,
format obsolescence, and reduced access to information due to inferior quality metadata.
To preserve, access and manage your information,
you need a data management plan,
accurate metadata, and an appropriate set of data management and access tools.
Otherwise, you may be looking at a big
rather than a frontier of unlimited potential.
