Posted In Business, Online services - By Techtiplib on Saturday, December 19th, 2015 With No Comments »

Big data is ubiquitous. According to a recent prediction by Indian Institute Architects (IIA), Big data Analytics will be embedded everywhere. IDC reports the market of Big data to reach $48.6 Billion by 2019, expanding with a CAGR of 23.1% from now. More than 50% of all business analytics software will include cognitive services in new apps by 2020.

Big Data

These predictions may also exceed the numbers mentioned as the speed with which the data is growing is unexpectedly fast. Many of the large volumes of data come directly from the online sources – the images, videos, blogs and articles generated, customer’s data on e-commerce platforms, and much more initiate the urgency of handling and managing this massive amount.

How can you manage and handle such huge volumes generated at a high velocity without any tool? This was the question arose several years back and forced technologists to invent competent technologies that cannot only compile, but analyze, retrieve, store, recover structured and unstructured data and present valuable information. Hadoop, MapR, HBase, Apache Spark, Storm, Hive, Cassandra, MongoDB and others are excellent big data innovations to improve your business processes and decisions.

More than 75% of the world’s organizations are going to invest huge dollars in Big data tools and platforms in the years to come. Whether you rationalize the business processes, pulling more traffic to their websites or implementing cost-effectiveness of your business, you can’t deny dealing with data. It has also been observed that Big data analytics had a considerable (positive) impact on company’s ROI.

There are thousands of jobs, generating every month in search of Big data Specialists and Architects, who can be productive from Day 1. According to Gartner’s prediction for jobs, there would be 4.4 Million IT jobs comprising Big Data Skills. Needless to mention, the average salary is way too far from expected. It calculates to around $120,000 per annum.

Individuals, who are willing to excel in their careers, can’t ignore the data eruption and need to learn these technologies without any delay. There is, in fact, an urgency for all teams and departments to at least get familiar with the basics and concepts of handling large volumes of data, whether you are a Software Developer, Testing Professional, Business Architect, Entry-level Programmer in Java, Python or any other programming language.
