Researcher IDG Enterprise released on Jan. 6, 2014 its 2014 big data survey results, and included a prediction that 2014 will see big data in the mainstreams of most large companies. These are some of the results (there were 751 respondents to the survey).

70 percent of enterprises have either deployed or are planning to deploy big data-related projects and programs, with a per-company investment averaging around $8 million. Seventy-four percent of these companies said that big data will be put into use by at least one business unit or department.

37 percent of survey respondents said that it is critical to identify the business areas and processes where big data can have the greatest impact.

29 percent said that it is also critical to ensure that a corporate skills base exists so that value can be effectively extracted from big data.
