A Brief History of Big Data

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Big data is a relatively new phenomenon comprised of a number of disciplines that contribute to making the technology possible. But have you ever wondered how we got here, how big data evolved over time? Well, the folks over at Winshuttle, an ERP Usability Company, along with Gil Press of Forbes worked to collect and finesse a historical perspective of big data and came up with a delightful timeline. The timeline displays a pictorial history of data storage as early as the 1930s, when it began to explode, the introduction of computers, business breakthroughs, future data predictions and more.


To better understand your place in history as a big data practitioner, you can play with the interactive timeline HERE.
