Research and Markets: Global Big Data Services Market Forecasts Report 2014-2018 with Accenture, HP & IBM & PricewaterhouseCoopers Dominating

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3m52wp/global_big_data) has announced the addition of the "Global Big Data Services Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.

The Global Big Data Services market to grow at a CAGR of 32% over the period 2013-2018

Big data services are a wide range of services required for processing and analyzing enterprise data, which is too large for traditional data processing tools. This data is generated from various sources such as mobile devices, digital repositories, and enterprise applications and ranges from terabytes (10^12 bytes) to petabytes (10^15 bytes) and even exabytes (10^18 bytes). Big data services are used to provide a wide range of facilities such as conversation analysis in social networking websites, fraud management in the BFSI sector, and disease diagnosis in the Healthcare sector.

The consolidation in the Global Big Data market is increasing as many large enterprise-computing vendors are acquiring companies to provide new big data technologies. Large vendors are targeting small companies to expand their business portfolios and are acquiring major pure-play big data vendors.

IBM acquired many analytics companies such as DemandTec Inc., Varicent Software, Tealeaf Technology Inc., Kenexa Corp., and Vivisimo in 2012. It acquired several more big data analytic companies such as StoredIQ Inc., Star Analytics Inc., and The Now Factory in 2013.

Hewlett-Packard Co. acquired major pure-play vendor Vertica for US$350 million in 2011 and EMC acquired Greenplum.

Also, AsterData was acquired by Teradata in 2011, Oracle Corp. acquired Datanomic Ltd., Endeca Technologies Inc., ClearTrail, and DataRaker Inc.

Through acquisitions, large enterprise computing vendors are trying to enhance their capabilities to deliver a comprehensive big data solution.

According to the report, the ability of big data services to analyze data quickly and predict the future of data trends accurately is one of the major drivers. Big data services improve business processes, enhance information, and shorten the decision-making process.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges is the lack of awareness about big data technology capability as IT service providers are ignorant about the competency of big data and do not invest in solutions analyzing a large amount of stored data.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will share examples from a wide range of industries – includin...
Unless your company can spend a lot of money on new technology, re-engineering your environment and hiring a comprehensive cybersecurity team, you will most likely move to the cloud or seek external service partnerships. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Darren Guccione, CEO of Keeper Security, revealed what you need to know when it comes to encryption in the cloud.
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.

Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Bradley Holt, a Developer Advocate with IBM Cloud Data Services, discussed...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, director/senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, will discuss the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
