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.

For the last hundred years, the desk phone has been a staple of every business. The landline has been a lifeline to customers and colleagues as the primary means of communication – even as email threatened to render the telephone obsolete. For some purposes, like conference calling, there was simply no substitute. That is, until a few years ago. With all due respect and apologies to Mr. Alexander Graham Bell, the desk phone is becoming just one solution, out of many devices, used for the modern...
The emergence of cloud computing and Big Data warrants a greater role for the PMO to successfully manage enterprise transformation driven by these powerful trends. As the adoption of cloud-based services continues to grow, a governance model is needed to orchestrate enterprise cloud implementations and harness the power of Big Data analytics. In his session at 15th Cloud Expo, Mahesh Singh, President of BigData, Inc., to discuss how the Enterprise PMO takes center stage not only in developing th...
The Open Group and BriefingsDirect recently assembled a distinguished panel at The Open Group Boston Conference 2014 to explore the practical implications and limits of the Internet of Things. This so-called Internet of Things means more data, more cloud connectivity and management, and an additional tier of “things” that are going to be part of the mobile edge -- and extending that mobile edge ever deeper into even our own bodies. Yet the Internet of Things is more than the “things” – it me...
Come learn about what you need to consider when moving your data to the cloud. In her session at 15th Cloud Expo, Skyla Loomis, a Program Director of Cloudant Development at Cloudant, will discuss the security, performance, and operational implications of keeping your data on premise, moving it to the cloud, or taking a hybrid approach. She will use real customer examples to illustrate the tradeoffs, key decision points, and how to be successful with a cloud or hybrid cloud solution.

Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With “smart” appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user’s habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps,...
Predicted by Gartner to add $1.9 trillion to the global economy by 2020, the Internet of Everything (IoE) is based on the idea that devices, systems and services will connect in simple, transparent ways, enabling seamless interactions among devices across brands and sectors. As this vision unfolds, it is clear that no single company can accomplish the level of interoperability required to support the horizontal aspects of the IoE. The AllSeen Alliance, announced in December 2013, was formed wi...
Goodness there is a lot of talk about cloud computing. This ‘talk and chatter’ is part of the problem, i.e., we look at it, we prod it and we might even test it out – but do we get down to practical implementation, deployment and (if you happen to be a fan of the term) actual cloud ‘rollout’ today? Cloud offers the promise of a new era they say – and a new style of IT at that. But this again is the problem and we know that cloud can only deliver on the promises it makes if it is part of a well...
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, B...
