SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (December 15, 2014) -- Data quality and volume are the primary problems affecting developers while exploring the evolving concept of Big Data, according to Evans Data Corporation’s recent Big Data and Advanced Analytics Survey, which measures and analyzes the attitudes and perceptions, as well as the current and planned activities of developers involved with Big Data.
The ripple effect influenced by data quality, which can cause problems in the processing phase and cost millions of dollars in lost revenue annually, was cited as the top problem by 21% of the approximately 400 developers involved with Big Data who were surveyed. Fourteen percent and 12% also cited the volume of data being processed and stored as their other chief concern, respectfully. The inability to gain insight from Big Data was also cited, though all options had a low response set indicating that no single hurdle is to blame for Big Data difficulties.
“Confidence in the veracity, precision, and comprehensiveness of the contents of an organization's data lake enables the kinds of complex exploratory analytics that can identify and deconstruct real-world trends as they emerge,” said Evans Data Corporation Analyst Charles Mander. “As such, the ability to capture and process big data in real-time can transform an organization's approach to strategic intelligence, adding tremendous value to data points that are already being generated in the course of normal activity.”
Evans Data Corporation’s Big Data and Advanced Analytics is a survey that covers topics such as Drivers, Barriers and Risks for Big Data, Machine and Deep Learning, Real Time Event Processing, Advanced Analytics Tools and Services, Big Data and Internet of Things, Data Visualization and Graphic Modeling Tool Use, Big Data and the Cloud, Hadoop, and Testing Requirements.
The need for Big Data solutions is becoming a reality for more and more companies; this report provides valuable insight into developer opinions on topics including what constitutes "Big Data," current database and analytics solutions, and motivations behind tools and services choices.
