Big Data Trends in 2012

Big Data will follow the Consumerization model, where the core infrastructure either comes as a service or an appliance

Big Data has caught the fancy of each and everyone. Consumer and enterprise world is looking to adopt the Big Data. Analysts are talking about it, proclaiming it to the next big thing!

Below is my take on how the Big Data market space will evolve in 2012 and years to come.

  • Data Analytics Service – We will start seeing SaaS vendors that will start offering data analytics as a service (e.g., 1010data). These vendors will be able to pull in your unstructured data and provide you standardized reports and data services. This is very similar to the Web analytics (like Omniture) but access lot more data to provide patterns. 70-80% of the data analysis pattern will be similar across industries. These vendors will be able to provide these reports as off the shelf capabilities. For the other 20%, the web interface will allow the user to create patterns to analyze the data
  • Data Visualization Service – Analysis is only one part of the data, the other big thing will be able to visualize the data (more like infographics) that help make sense of the scale and data points. Business will need help to make sense of all this analysis and again 3rd party vendors (via products or Saas) will be fulfilling this space
  • Crowdsourcing Model – enterprise will start using the crowdsourcing model to help analyze and find patterns in the data. Goldcorp was one the original pioneers that used the crowdsourcing model to analyze the geological data. This model will be seen more when dealing large geospatial data in the areas of mining, drilling, oil ad gas
  • RDBMS vendors will make a comeback – Big Data has been scoring high on account of their ability to analyze and process unstructured data. The NoSQL vendors and products are all claiming to be the holy grail of data storage, fast processing and analytics. I believe, the Big Vendors –Oracle, IBM and to some extent Microsoft will release their version of relational databases that can store (using automated data sharding) and process large amount of data (with a SQL MapReduce layer). The vendors will incorporate techniques from the NoSQL world coupled with in-memory storage (think Coherence, eXtreme Scale) to provide sub second read write response times. The market is too big for the existing vendors to not claim supremacy
  • NoSQL market will shake up – The current crop of NoSQL solutions has emerged as need to fulfill certain use cases. Their base features and functionality have been decided by the patronizing user client/project co-sponsors (e.g. Cassandra – Facebook, Hadoop-Yahoo, membase-Zynga). These NoSQL solutions work very well for the specific use case. Attempts to broad base the use case, mean a lot of effort needs to put in. Along the way, some products will merge, some will lose community support and other will get acquired by product vendor companies
  • Data Analysis Libraries - To help the developers analyze data, the common patterns and designs will be available as off the shelf libraries. This means, analyzing data for most common patterns will be easier and will become no-brainer. The projected need for Data scientists will not materialize to the same extent with the proliferation of these libraries. E.g. MS Cloud Numerics

Big Data will follow the Consumerization model, where the core infrastructure either comes as a service or an appliance. The data analytics, data visualization will be provided as a standard set of services on top of the raw data with an ability to create your own model.

Do let me know, how do you see the Big Data market moving forward and do you agree or disagree with my predictions?

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, introduced the technologies required for implementing these idea...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, discussed the impact of technology on identity. Sho...
Technology vendors and analysts are eager to paint a rosy picture of how wonderful IoT is and why your deployment will be great with the use of their products and services.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Peter Vanderminden, Principal Industry Analyst for IoT & Digital Supply Chain to Flatiron Strategies, will focus on how IoT depl...
Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at Dell EMC, introduced a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organization...
With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...

The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures. Yet all of this technology – and there are an amazing number of choices – is of no use without the software to gather, communicate, and analyze the new data flows. Without software, there is no IT. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation; Alan Williamson, Principal ...
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
