September 24, 2012–It’s a safe assumption that big data itself no longer qualifies as “the next big thing”. It’s here and it’s staying. However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t juicy up-and-comers within the industry needing attention, as we discovered in a recent Money Control story, “Nasscom, Crisil Launch Big Data The Next Big Thing Report.”
According to the story:
“Big Data – The Next Big Thing”, a first-of-its-kind report on the ‘Big Data’ industry, focusing on the opportunities, challenges, and its impact on businesses globally. ‘Big Data’ relates to rapidly growing, structured and unstructured datasets with sizes beyond the ability of conventional database tools to store, manage, and analyse them.
The report identifies five key insights on global ‘Big Data’ trends and the opportunity it throws up for IT and analytics players in India. First, Big Data has become all-pervasive with the potential to create significant benefits for a number of sectors. The early adopters driving the business with appetite for Big Data analytics are industries such as Manufacturing, Retail, Financial Services, Telecom and Healthcare.
We have more than a few suggestions for this brilliant report. One of the biggest next big thing tales we found was news that Cristobal Conde is helping strengthen the already impressive board at Digital Reasoning, promising to elevate Synthesys to a new height. We expect this to be the tip of the iceberg.
