Exploring the Big Data Challenges and Opportunities

The need for Big Data solutions is becoming a reality for more companies. The market hype around big data is ending, signifying a long-term adoption trend that will expose many software application opportunities in the coming year.

As the broader big data and analytics (BDA) products and services market approaches $100 billion in revenues, software vendors are faced with the need to address an increasingly fragmented enterprise buyer population.

A new worldwide market study provides valuable insight into developer opinions about big data technologies, current database and analytics solutions, and the buyer motivations behind product and service choices.

Data quality and growing volume are the primary problems affecting software developers while exploring the evolving concept of big data, according to findings from the latest survey by Evans Data Corp.

This comprehensive market study measured and analyzed the IT buyer and business decision maker attitudes and perceptions, as well as the current and planned activities of developers involved with big data projects.

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 percent of the respondent developers who were surveyed.

Fourteen percent cited the volume of data being processed as a concern, and another 12 percent said their chief concern was more about the ongoing challenges of data storage.

Moreover, 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 project 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 Charles Mander, analyst at Evans Data.

As such, Mander believes that 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 business activity.

Evans annual survey covers topics such as the key drivers, barriers and risks for big data, machine and deep learning, real-time event processing, advanced analytics tools and related services.

It also covers big data applications relative to the Internet of Things (IoT), data visualization and graphic modeling tool use, cloud computing, Hadoop and testing requirements.

Mobility-as-a-Service Creates Disruptive Travel Options

Building on significant advances in big data, analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT), more innovative transit service offerings aim to increase public transport ridership and reduce emissions or congestion within metropolitan areas. By providing these services through smartphone apps, the transit services also significantly increase user convenience, providing information on different human mobility offerings -- including public transport, ridesharing, and autonomous vehicles. Mobility-as-a-Service Market Development According to the latest market study by Juniper Research, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) subscribers will generate $53 billion in revenue for MaaS platform providers by 2027 -- that's rising from $5.3 billion in 2021. Let's start with a basic definition. MaaS is the provision of multi-modal end-to-end travel services through single platforms, by which users can determine an optimal route and price. The study identified a monthly subscription model as key to incr

Robocall Mitigation Solutions to Halt Criminal Threats

If you answer the phone and hear a recorded message instead of a live person, it's likely a robocall. A robocall is a phone call that uses a computerized autodialer to deliver a pre-recorded message. In 2020, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) received 2.8 million consumer complaints about robocalls. Offering solutions to robocalling and associated fraudulent business practices, computerized mitigation platforms are an integral part of the solution. Platforms that are focused on actionable systems to disrupt unsolicited and potentially criminal phone calls help telecom service providers and industry regulators. Issues of whether one-size-fits-all developments are sufficient to be effective across the spectrum need to be addressed, and whether a single telecom network operator working unilaterally with a third-party platform could compromise desired or mandatory industry-wide standards. Robocall Mitigation Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Jun

Why a Distributed Workforce will Raise Productivity

While most senior executives at progressive organizations have already evolved their human resource policies to accommodate employee desire for flexible working models, others still resist change. Unfortunately, many of the laggards are now experiencing the "Great Resignation" phenomenon. The global pandemic required business leaders to rethink when, where, and how their knowledge workers and front-line employees perform their work. Yet even with the ongoing pandemic recovery slowly underway, some organizations are still trying to determine their workforce approach. According to the latest worldwide market study and recent survey data from International Data Corporation (IDC), stability and geography will likely define the balance of future work strategies. Distributed Workforce Market Development On a global basis, physical office sites are expected to be the dominant location for work as legacy organizations eventually find themselves in a more stable environment. However,
