In 2014 we saw an increasing number of enterprises engage with and implement big data strategies. Simultaneously, big data pioneers made some big plays that further inspired big data adoption and use. The underlying theme is that machine learning and cognitive computing is the next big development in big data.
Big data could be a $125 billion dollar market in 2015 according to our friends at IDC and it shows no signs of slowing down. Intelligent data applications, natural language processing and predictive semantic search are all fast becoming a reality from the aggregates of data we produce in enterprise applications, the Internet of Things, or mobile.
Gigaom’s Structure Data conference next month promises to illuminate these developments with the same high standard of speakers and discussion we bring to our news and research, diving into the technologies being built today as well as the applications companies are working toward tomorrow. We’ll talk about issues that shape policy including crime, health care, and security. We’ll sit down with the big players who put big data and analytics on the forefront of every enterprise CTO’s mind. And Big Data Research Director Andrew Brust and his team of Analysts will be on site with insights and analysis of how these markets are continuing to develop.
I hope you can join us next month at Structure Data, March 18-19 in New York City. It’ll be a great show!
