Report: 80% of global datasphere will be unstructured by 2025

According to a new report by nRoad, analysts predict the global datasphere will grow to 163 zettabytes by 2025, and about 80% of that will be unstructured. In regulated industries, such as financial services, the challenges posed by unstructured data are exponentially higher. It is estimated that two-thirds of financial data is hidden in content sources that are not readily transparent. With unstructured data growing at an unprecedented rate, financial services firms are finding it difficult to harness data and derive actionable insights.
