Discover the Big Data Trends of 2017

The movement towards the future goes in high speed and high value. If we just look at the technical developments in the last couple of years it is just amazing. The world of Big Data has evolved and companies are using the technologies more and more. Only a couple months on our way in 2017  and the most common trends for this year are known. I wrote about the trends in Master Data Management and of course the trends in data management software. Now it is time to discover the Big Data trends for this year. I am happy to share this info graphic from Tableau with you. It gives you a fast approach and inside into the world of Big Data Trends.

Providing some context about Big Data Trends (by Tableau)

2016 was a landmark year for big data with more organizations storing, processing, and extracting value from data of all forms and sizes. In 2017, systems that support large volumes of both structured and unstructured data will continue to rise. The market will demand platforms that help data custodians govern and secure big data while empowering end users to analyze that data. These systems will mature to operate well inside of enterprise IT systems and standards.

Organizations with big data are over 70 percent more likely than other organizations to have BI projects that are driven primarily by the business community, not by the IT group.

If you ask me the focus will shift more and more towards the optimal use of Big Data in the next year. I will not say that Big Data will get a commodity but it will make the step towards this phase. The challenge will be to connect the world from the past with all the different legacy systems to the new world of Big Data. However I am certain that the investments will rise to a level we have never seen before.
