In the information age, data is a vital source for everything: from housekeeping to business management, people need to stay tuned in order to survive. But the tricky thing is that the amount of data available both offline and online is so huge it cannot be traced manually anymore, and it continues to grow. According to Raconteur, each day we publish 500 million tweets, send 294 billion emails, and make five billion search requests. The amount of data generated daily is expected to reach 463 exabytes by 2025. The numbers are mind-blowing, and the first question to arise is: how do we process all this data?
The subject is at the top of the agenda for business owners—70% out of 1,048 executives, surveyed by Deloitte for their Becoming An Insight-Driven Organization report, expect business analytics to become more important in the next three years. The growing demand for BI services cannot but influence the market: IDC forecasts the global revenue for big data and business analytics solutions to reach $274 billion by 2022.
It didn’t take long for companies to realize how beneficial BI is for maintaining a competitive edge. The so-called Big Data Bang resulted in hundreds of companies offering data-related services, which made the challenge of finding a trustworthy business partner tougher than ever.
