IDC's Worldwide Storage for Big Data and Business Analytics Taxonomy, 2016

IDC's Worldwide Storage for Big Data and Business Analytics Taxonomy, 2016This IDC study examines the storage component of the Big Data and business analytics infrastructure market. This study describes IDC's definition of Big Data and business analytics, the criteria and methodology for the storage components that support most such deployments. IDC expects storage to dominate the Big Data and business analytics infrastructure stack. This is because as more businesses deploy such environments, they will identify newer data sets to analyze and retain more data in their infrastructure."The Big Data and business analytics markets are fusing together thanks to continued expansionary forces in the amount of data generated that compel businesses to quickly analyze relevant data," said Ashish Nadkarni, research director at IDC. "To gain valuable insight from this data, businesses need a storage infrastructure that offers consistent but lower and measurable dollar-per-IOPS, dollar-per-transaction, and dollar-per-gigabyte costs."
