Enterprise systems are increasingly strained by the sheer volume of data that is consumed, generated, and manipulated during the course of everyday operations. This paper discusses the challenges faced by different industries and how networking technology can help businesses scale system performance. A recurrent theme across all of these sectors is the sheer volume of data that needs to be analyzed, assessed, and used strategically, in real time, or as near real time, as possible. The mapping of the human genome provides a powerful example of how analyzing data faster can affect the competitive nature of a business.
