In this sentence

It results in the onslaught of the data created by devices.

should I remove "the" before data? or since I'm talking about a kind of data that is created by devices, I should keep the?

    Unlike the article before onslaught, the article before data (AND the article before devices) are both optional. But in both the latter cases it's usually more appropriate to include the article if the relevant data and/or devices have already been contextually identified (or referenced, at least by implication). – FumbleFingers Reinstate Monica Jan 4 at 19:28

I like: 'it results in an onslaught of device created data'

'it launched an onslaught ..'

  • I'd at least put a hyphen between device and created, but this doesn't answer the question at hand. – user3395 Jan 4 at 21:26
