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.

Why Healthcare and Smart City Apps Drive 5G IoT

Fifth-generation (5G) wireless technology for cellular networks is a successor to fourth-generation (4G) wireless technology. By 2023, Juniper Research anticipates that there will be over 1 billion 5G connections globally. The technology will provide the data infrastructure for the advancement of wireless communications and for new developments in the Internet of Things (IoT) -- including smart cities and healthcare. 5G IoT Market Development According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, 5G IoT connections will reach 116 million globally by 2026 -- that's increasing from just 17 million connections in 2023. Juniper analysts predict that the healthcare sector applications and government or other smart city services will drive this outstanding 1,100 percent growth over the next three years. Juniper examined 5G adoption across key industry sectors -- such as the automotive, mobile broadband, and smart homes -- and forecasts healthcare and smart cities will accoun

How Savvy Leaders Re-Imagine Work in 2023

As we look to the year ahead, there will be significant challenges and opportunities facing the Chief Human Resource Officer (CHRO) role. In order to be successful, savvy HR leaders must be prepared to take proactive steps that adapt and evolve. "HR leaders have faced an increasingly unpredictable environment amid many organizations mandating a return to office, permanently higher turnover and burnt out employees," said Emily Rose McRae, senior director at Gartner . HR Innovation Market Development One of Gartner's key predictions for 2023 is that the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and automation will continue to increase within the enlightened digital workplace. This transition will require HR leaders to develop new skills and competencies in order to effectively manage and lead teams that are increasingly relying on these enabling technologies. Additionally, HR leaders will need to ensure that their organizations are investing in the necessary infrastructure and re

Secure Microcontroller Market to Reach $2.2 Billion

In spite of the volatile global semiconductor industry being plagued by ongoing macroeconomic and political disruption issues, the secure microcontroller (MCU) market should continue to prosper. While the forecasted total available market has contracted -- especially in the smart home, retail, advertising, and supply chain spaces -- secure MCU shipments will likely be temporarily affected.  According to the latest worldwide market study by ABI Research, the secure microcontrollers market will grow to reach $2.2 billion by 2026. Secure Microcontroller Market Development "In part, this is due to the niche nature of security demand which commands a higher value proposition," says Michela Menting, research director at ABI Research . In the short term, potential supply chain issues due to trade embargoes and global COVID-19 pandemic quarantines at manufacturing sites will affect availability. Yet, demand for security, especially in general purpose microcontrollers, will ensure the
