5 Big Trends Happening in Big Data

bits bytes

According to a recent report, 84 percent of enterprises believe that big data will change their industries in the next year. Because of this, it has become essential for companies to embrace this movement in order to maintain their market position and competitive edge, while also adapting to employees’ needs and wants. By understanding the current landscape, the transition to big data adoption will be much smoother for all involved.

First and foremost, moving data to the cloud allows employees to access important information both on- and off-premise, helping to promote adaptability across the board. In this current age of telecommuting and flexible scheduling, it is important for businesses to be able to meet the needs of all employees, both virtual and present. In addition, big data is helping businesses better plan for disaster recovery as data contingency plans are now a must.

Alongside all of the perks of big data, companies also need to plan for the challenges. Because of the sheer amount of information that big data provides, managing and analyzing data often becomes difficult and requires human input. However, efficient SOR systems are helping organizations adapt so they can stay in tune to the needs of their business and their workforce.
