Data continues to be a hot topic as companies move to advance their enterprise capabilities and offerings. But as companies collect vast amounts of data, they struggle with analysis and its application. In some cases, they tap Big Data solutions providers to help manage and gather insight from their data troves.
"Big Data analytics services represent a fast-growing market valued at $40 billion in 2015," according to Teradata’s press release.
Teradata is preparing for a spike in demand for "multi-genre analytics, new data infrastructures and business models," as IoT takes off, according to the company. Gartner recently predicted there will be 25 billion or more IoT devices connected to the Internet by 2020.
