IBM Big Data Solutions Roadshow
The IT infrastructure that enables a Smarter Planet
In today’s world there is an ever increasing amount of data. Estimates point to data growing at 50 percent a year, or more than doubling every two years. It’s not just more streams of data, but entirely new ones. Businesses and government agencies are confronted with three dimensions of this Big Data challenge—volume, variety, and velocity. Of course, Big Data is more than a challenge; it is an opportunity to find insight in new and emerging types of data, to make your business more agile.
According to IDC, the market for Big Data technology and services will reach $16.9 billion by 2015, up from $3.2 billion in 2010. That is a 40 percent-a-year growth rate — about seven times the estimated growth rate for the overall information technology and communications business.
Join us to learn about the IBM Big Data solution portfolio and how you can take advantage of the great market opportunity.
