This new IBM-commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting shows that fast data is transforming the way companies benefit from data…and many challenges remain.
- Over three-quarters of respondents are already using fast data for at least some of their applications
- But three-quarters are also currently using or planning to implement machine learning capabilities, because their existing capabilities aren’t enough
- And 85% of firms feel that their data and analytics tools are only “somewhat integrated” at best, leading to slow speeds, missed opportunities and lower productivity
Nearly all respondents are setting a new data strategy, and most want a new fast data solution. The consensus pick is a hybrid cloud deployment of a commercially-enhanced open source solution with support and full integration.
For a quick look at the current state of fast data, including the market challenges and key recommendations for success, read this Forrester study today.
