Big data will drive $232 billion in IT spending through 2016
|19 октября 2012|
More and more, big data is driving enterprise IT spending. In fact, research firm Gartner predicts that big data will drive a whopping $232 billion in IT spending through 2016.Gartner says big data will drive $28 billion in IT spending this year, and $34 billion in IT spending next year.
Most of the current spending will be used in adapting traditional IT products to big data demands, such as machine data, social data, widely varied data and unpredictable velocity. By the end of 2015, Gartner expects organizations to begin using their big data experience in an embedded form in their IT architectures and practices.
In traditional IT supplier markets, big data affects application infrastructure and middleware more than storage software, database management system, data integration/quality, business intelligence or supply chain management, according to Gartner research.
Big data opportunities emerged when several advances in different IT categories aligned, creating a dramatic increase in computing technology capacity. This new capacity, coupled with latent demands for analysis of "dark data," social networks data and operational technology or machine data, created an environment conducive to rapid innovation, Gartner explained.
"Because big data's effects are pervasive, big data will evolve to become a standardized requirement in leading information architectural practices, forcing older practices and technology into early obsolescence," said Mark Beyer, research vice president at Gartner.
Turning all that data into usable information poses a challenge for enterprises. How enterprises handle that challenge will determine whether they succumb to the data or harness it for improved productivity and competitiveness.
