Phenomena is well-known but figures are still impressive…

  • 40% of those surveyed said they had the information they needed less than 75% of the time
  • 60% of respondents rated dealing with too many different types of information a bigger problem than dealing with too much information
  • Nearly half of the respondents said they spend more than 25% of their time managing information overload
  • Combined, the total paper and digital content in enterprises, governments, schools, and small businesses around the world will grow 67% a year
  • etc.
