We hear a lot about Big Data these days — and now the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has released a report detailing just how big it’s getting. According to the Forum for Innovation, 90 percent of the world’s data has been produced in the last two years. And that means, of course, that companies need a place to store it.

Marketplace’s Stacey Vanek Smith joins Tech host Ben Johnson to discuss.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
