Gartner’s 2013 Big Data survey was recently released and has highlighted some of the long held beliefs in Big Data with survey evidence to prove it.
The survey itself was primarily focused on companies currently working with Gartner. Despite this, due to the numbers and varieties, this is still a broad and impressive number who can realistically give accurate results.
One of the most striking results to come out of the survey was that 64% of companies were planning or have already implemented Big Data systems. This is a significant number as it show that there is a genuine drive within companies to adopt the system. That more than half of companies are looking at the ways they are using data and looking at new data initiatives is only going to be a positive for industry growth.
