What significant changes did Big Data segment witness in 2013?

Big Data is becoming an integral part of the enterprise data management portfolio across major industry verticals including finance, utility, service provider, retail, healthcare and public sector, not replacing but expanding their existing enterprise application capabilities. The gains from insights derived from Big Data is leading to increasing efficiency and new business opportunities.

What are some of the changes you had anticipated would happen in 2013 but did not happen?

While there is momentum across all the verticals, many enterprises have been slow in identifying use cases for Big Data. There are several reasons such as lack of internal process for sharing data from various sources and applications, not having the right hardware and software platform, and not having skilled resources who can guide them on use cases and applications.

Can you paint us the picture of how the landscape for this industry segment will change in 2014? What are some of the broader trends you are closely watching?

The industry will be driven by new innovative applications and services - several of them customized to individuals and businesses – demanding optimizations at all levels from acquisition, transmission, store, and analyze.A growing trend is “store everything” while the use cases and applications mature but few enterprises are more selective about their use cases and investments, looking for clear ROI.

From a broader perceptive, data storage will continue to be an area of tremendous growth in next few years – both spinning media and flash.

Another broader trend is further optimization of infrastructure to support multiple applications and tenants.

What's in store for your company in 2014?

There are several innovations happing across the board that will further simplify the infrastructure and application deployment and management.
