datawarm.pngData, a species that originated through the evolution of human being and is the foundation to all revolutions in human history, very silently and without much ado went through a big DNA transformation in the recent past...

Information was passed on as inheritance and stored in scripts during the early civilizations. Slowly the society became more open and free to information. Leading to the first transformation in data namely right to information.

Then came the computers that freed the format in which data could be authored, stored or delivered... this was next revolution that changed the data to its core and housed it in bytes away from the brains.

Later the net was cast on information and data grew into a new cult namely internet. This change made data available anywhere anytime and in any format.


There after the Social revolution, that brought more human touch to the data. Brains and Bytes came together to give the emotions that this species lacked. Semantics, Sentiments and Influence became the language of data.

Data became more ubiquitous with smarter devices.


This is the long evolution curve that data has taken from a flicker in the brain to a pulse in the byte.

The first visible change was in its state... the rigid predefined structure of data changed to a very fluid form with Velocity, Variety and Volume as its physical properties...These changes were neither very quick nor due to a single parameter. This gradual transformation was facilitated and triggered through human evolution and internet explosion.


Further the change was in the relationship stature these species had. It was very static and long term conventionally. Slowly the relationship status became dynamic and very contextual. Intent based associations and colonization became the social buzz word.


These associations flourished with emotions helped the human step successfully in this world of bytes....




It’s nice to see, how beautifully you have written on a topic that is so vast, so untouched and so important. The name itself says “Big data”. You have brought out the key sentiments of this little elephant and made it so easy and fun to learn about it.
Awesome work!! :)

Good post.....just like Darwin's theory!

Very well written. You have explained the evolution of data in a simple and astounding way!!

You can really become a good teacher in your field as you have explained such a complicated theory by expressing your self positively.

Great writing style, brought out the essence quite effortlessly.Looking forward to the next one, Keep posting!

Very well written on this vast topic.

Good article. How are you going to mould the data in the next article

I always think and feel of the synergy bet data-being and human-being.. the gap was always the emotions and rightly put here this convergence is a must and is going to be extremely powerful.. one more shift or lift in the data-being evolution is the context of usage - earlier it was viewed and used from a business mind set perspective but the social blanket is giving it the warmth and comfort beyond business and taking it into the human heart giving emotions and sentiment dimensions..No wonder its transforming into a omnipresent form due to its power.. the line is of course blurring bet data-being and human-being..
