Evolving Market for Big Data and Analytics Software

Big Data market development is a hot topic, but it's merely an ingredient of the larger data platforms landscape. There will be significant new revenue growth within the Total Data market, according to the latest worldwide market study by 451 Research.

Consisting of data platforms, data management, data analytics, and data mining the total data software market is expected to nearly double in size, from $60 billion in 2014 to $115 billion in 2019.

"The market continues to evolve and new approaches have emerged that more efficiently store and process data, while also providing access to those that need it to analyze it and gain business insight," said Matt Aslett, research director at 451 Research.

The specific market segments included in their latest analysis includes operational databases, analytic databases, reporting and analytics, data management, performance management, event/stream processing, distributed data grid/cache, hadoop and search-based data platforms and analytics.


They predict that the focus on big data -- which has driven a wave of adoption to address unstructured data in addition to existing structured data processing and analytics technologies -- will lead to a market CAGR of 14 percent from 2014 to 2019.

The current forecast is based on the 451 Research new Total Data Market Monitor service, which presents data -- generated via a bottom-up analysis -- of 202 vendors that participate across the nine Total Data segments that the company tracks.

Referring to the evolving market dynamics, Aslett said, "Our research illustrates the dichotomy inherent in the data platform and analytics market -- while it is smaller startups in emerging sectors that are growing the fastest, the incumbent providers in established markets are likely to contribute the greatest value over the next five years."

The fifty-six Operational Database vendors generate the bulk of total market revenue, followed by Reporting and Analytics and Analytic Databases. Rounding out the $1 billion-plus market segment group is Data Management with the remaining segments all below the $1 billion mark.

In addition to the top-line market and sub-sector revenue, 451 Research segments market revenue into geographic regions, by Total Data-as-a-Service and segment Operational Databases into NoSQL, NewSQ and Traditional Relational and Non-relational Databases.

A new Linux Phone Standards Forum (LiPS) has been founded to promote mass market adoption of Linux telephony terminals through standardization, interoperability testing and market education. The founding members include Cellon, France Telecom, FTM Labs, Huawei, Jaluna, Mizi, Open Plug and PalmSource. LiPS will support device manufacturers and operators in bringing to market Linux-based devices at lower cost (due to lower deployment costs through standardization), while facilitating the programming and development process for software and silicon vendors. The Forum said plans to work with other organizations such as the OMTP and OMA to identify requirements of distinct device categories including smartphones, feature phones, fixed-line, or converged devices. For each of these categories, or profiles, LiPS will define standard API�s that support relevant applications and services as well as a certification process for technology providers. In keeping with the open source philosophy, L

Cloud Services Gain New Momentum in Europe

Across European nations, more CIOs and CTOs are investing in public cloud services that become the essential foundation for the design and delivery of innovative digital transformation projects. Public cloud computing spending in Europe will reach $113 billion in 2022 and will double to $239 billion by 2026, growing at a 22 percent 5-year CAGR, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC).

Strategic Digital Transformation Spending Trends

Looking ahead, many Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) continue to selectively invest in new strategic digital transformation projects that enable a significant competitive advantage. Some additional investments may go towards improving existing IT infrastructure and operations.  Worldwide IT spending is now projected to total $4.5 trillion in 2022 -- that's an increase of 3 percent from 2021, according to the latest updated estimate by Gartner. For now, most CIOs will be relieved that their budget is safe from major cuts. While IT spending is expected to grow in 2022, it will be at a slower pace than in 2021 -- partly due to a 5 percent cutback on spending for personal computers, media tablets, and printers.
