Big Data grows to $46 billion market, soon to touch $72 billion


The big buzzword Big Data has the whopping figure to back up its dignity, including $46 billion in 2016 revenue. However, it is just the tip of the iceberg; the real growth is yet to come.

The new reports from SNS research predict that by end of 2020, the companies will spend more than $72 billion on Big Data software/hardware and professional services. SNS research suggested, although, the current revenue is dominated by the professional services and hardware data, but by the end of 2020, the software revenue is estimated to exceed the hardware investments with $7 billion, while the growth is expected at a CAGR of 12 percent over next four years. Despite the challenges of private concerns and organizational resistance, Big Data investments are poised to gain the momentum throughout the globe.

The principal analyst at Ovum, Tony Baer suggested, "Sooner, Big Data will become stable stake for enterprises. Although, It is not aimed to offer the unique competitive edge to innovators, but still add a new baseline to the data analytics and decision support which is must for the enterprises to incorporate into the decision-making processes of their businesses."

The growth of the technology is attributed to a range of factors. In the recent months, Big Data vendors have become a little quiet, but the concurrent quiescence of the market is more of the need of Big Data analytics for businesses. From the state of exciting technology trend, Big Data has started to shift towards maturity. This means that the businesses have to take a different approach and bring the more focus on fine details instead of the groundbreaking products.

Data warehousing and business intelligence are top areas sensing the spending this year, but only about one quarter of organisations are investing in Big Data plans, therefore, the real growth is yet to come. Besides, the cloud storage services are making Big Data affordable, but the current shortage of business analysts with the rights skills poses the challenge.

Frank Scavo, President of Computer Economics said," If you’re looking to direct your investment towards Big Data, it is better recommended for you to be ready to invest in finding and training the people to develop the needed skills. On other hand, if you are an IT professional and looking to start out in your career, the amazingly capable Big Data would be the most beneficial and important area to concentrate upon."

Further, the numbers are anticipated to rise to 70 percent by 2020 and the cloud-first policy is already prevailing in the industry. The increased cloud usage triggers mostly due to acquisitions, merger, hardware refreshes, and software upgrades and data center capacity expansions.
