Partnering in the 3rd Platform: Spotlight on Big Data

Partnering in the 3rd Platform: Spotlight on Big Data

This IDC study is the sixth in a series of documents that examine the findings of IDC's most recent software partner survey, which focused on partnering in the 3rd Platform. It provides an overview of current participation in and future plans for offering big data solutions and the reasons why partners choose to or choose not to become involved in big data solutions, and it provides essential guidance to vendors that want to encourage partners to become involved with big data technologies.

"Big data is an important component of many partners' 3rd Platform portfolio; however, the participation rate falls far below that for cloud and mobility. But the good news is that means there is lots of room for ecosystem growth and recruitment of new partners." — Marilyn Carr, research director, Software Channels and Ecosystems research
