Big Data Moving Beyond First Movers, Going Mainstream in 2015

By Chris Preimesberger  |  Posted 2015-01-28

The collection and analysis of big data workloads was perhaps the biggest trend in enterprise computing during the last 12 months, yet the lasting impact of these projects at many companies won't be fully realized for months—even years—to come. Still, market evidence suggests that in the next 12 months, big data analytics will be matriculating beyond first-movers and going mainstream. IDC recently documented these predictions in " IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Big Data and Analytics Predictions for 2015." The research firm cited the "digitization of everything," the continued increase in the number of data producers and new expectations for information access as key drivers for the coming year. While these are undoubtedly major trends for 2015, Chris Surdak, a global subject matter expert at HP Software, said they only set the stage for what his company expects in the market. In this slide show, developed with eWEEK reporting and input from Surdak, we share key trends for the coming year in the big data space.
