Wikibon, a professional community solving technology and business problems, will release on Thursday, Oct. 16, 2014 new, independent, user-based research on the state of Big Data Analytics in the enterprise. The Wikibon research covers adoption rates by industry, technologies in use, types of data being analyzed, and where in the lifecycle projects stand. The research will be shared during a live event, beginning at 4pm EST on Thursday, October 16, 2014 at the Hilton Times Square, geared to the capital markets in New York City. Members of the investment and media community are welcome to attend via RSVP. Space is limited.
“Big data analytics is hard. For every cloud computing success story highlighted in the main street media, there are many other enterprises struggling to get value out of their investments in Big Data analytics technologies, services and staff,” said Wikibon Principal Analyst Jeff Kelly. He continued, “One year ago, our research found that 48% of Big Data practitioners had yet to realize the full value of their big data analytics investments. With this report, we looked into the main barriers to successful big data deployments. The result is great insight into what is really going on in the marketplace, views into how companies and can best compete and grow in this exploding market, and the first market forecast for the platforms of choice in Big Data analytics -- Hadoop and NoSQL.”
