“Big Data” and Business Intelligence have been around for years, but it wasn’t until the last couple years that these initiatives have become more defined and tangible. It’s apparent, now, that our infrastructure and analysis tools have caught up to our ambitions. More data is being generated now than ever before, and business decision makers can no longer ignore the growth in volume, velocity and variety of data. It’s fuel for your business, waiting to be used.
Here are a few predictions for Big Data in 2015:
BI, visualization and dashboarding merge as analytics take center stage
In 2015, business intelligence, visualization, dashboarding and ad-hoc query tools – most of which are marketed and sold today as separate product categories – will begin to merge as one.
Marriage of the old and the new
If big data is in fact now the infrastructure of reality and if companies truly want to get serious about achieving returns from the investments they’ve made, then they have little choice but to make 2015 the year they marry the old (their existing relational infrastructure) with the new (their big data platforms).
Information-as-a-Service begins to emerge
The popularity of “as-a-Service” delivery model is only going to increase in the years ahead. On the heels of the success of software as a service models, I believe Information-as-a-Service or Expertise-as-a-Service models are likely the next step in the evolution.
The Internet of Things (IoT) enters a period of disillusionment
And that’s a good thing. Before anything can really grow up into a “real” technology that has real application for real companies, issues need to be ironed out, and that can’t happen until those issues arise in the first place. This includes issues with connectivity, applicability and most of all, security.
