Big Data: From Buzzword to Business Benefits [Infographic]

by   |    |  1,526 views

We all know the term "Big Data," but is bigger always better? What benefits does Big Data actually bring to companies?

Card printer Colourfast compiled data from a study by the Business Application Research Center into an infographic that illustrates the benefits of Big Data, including how it's being used, and some barriers to adoption.

The findings include the following:

• Some 40% of companies worldwide use Big Data analytics, citing benefits such as the ability to make better strategic decisions and improved control of operation processes.

• In 61% of companies where Big Data initiatives are a part of integrated business processes, senior management is the primary driver.

    I love your articles and posts 99.9% of the time, but an article about Big Data that is from 2 years ago seems too old to be truly valuable. Thanks for all the good stuff you do share.
