A big truck
It turns out there's a lot of data about these days. It also appears that communications technology has failed to keep up with data volumes, with the result that some IT leaders are resorting to trucking petabytes of data around the world rather than sticking the entire data lake in an email attachment and clicking send (pro tip: don't do that).
So why not help your enterprise gets its data to where it's needed faster, by buying it a whacking great monster truck? Or you could just wait for Elon Musk to invent faster-than-light data transfer tech. Once he's conquered space flight.
Remember those massive data volumes we talked about? Well it turns out the data isn't much use by itself. Data scientists were all the rage in 2015, but in 2017 it's all going to be about AI - apparently supercomputers are EVEN BETTER at spotting patterns than people who really like numbers and aren't necessarily all that keen on people.
Just watch out for the tendency for them to turn into genocidal maniacs. And if you work for the military, maybe don't hook it up to the big red button.
