Data is the new oil? That's just too much


Data is the new oil? That's just too much

Billy MacInnes
Judging by Google, there seem to be a lot of people around at the moment who are opening their presentations with the bold statement that "data is the new oil".

It's a pretty exciting and thought-provoking way to get people's attention. Having never attended any of these presentations I can't vouch for the merits of their arguments. They may well be right but I have one niggling doubt over the validity of such a comparison. In all my time on this earth, I have never, ever, heard anyone complain about having too much oil.
