  • CEOs are focused on the value of big data and are partnering with IT executives who will purchase/manage/execute on the strategies.
  • Organizations are investing in developing or buying software applications, additional sever hardware, and hiring staff with analytics skills in preparation for big data initiatives.
  • Organizations are facing numerous challenges with big data initiatives and limited availability of skilled employees to analyze and manage data tops the list.
  • In the next 12-18 months, organizations plan to invest in skill sets necessary for big data deployments, including data scientists (27%), data architects (24%), data analysts (24%), data visualizers (23%), research analysts (21%), and business analysts (21%).
  • Half of respondents indicated there is no clear thought leader in the big data solution space.
