Big data and analytics is a broad technology domain that involves on the one hand, the infrastructure to support very large data lakes, and on the other, the analytical applications that leverage those data lakes for the benefit of business decision makers. As a result, Frost & Sullivan tracks the adoption of big data technology and conducts annual surveys to gauge the degree to which such technology provides measurable returns on investment. We also cover the application of analytics to tap the promise of big data, and since this increasingly includes the application of heuristics and cognitive computing technologies, we follow those spaces carefully as well.
One of the more interesting aspects of big data is the degree to which it can now consolidate diverse streams of data to build extremely detailed profiles of individual consumers. This is catching the attention of public policy groups and regulators so we also follow the impact on privacy that these technologies have and have engaged with some of the top thinkers in this field. Privacy is a key area of analysis in the practice.
Finally, big data and advanced analytics are expensive solutions that demand a transformational approach to business management. As a result, we also track the degree to which BDA users are reconfiguring their businesses to leverage such technology.
