Future of Big Data
Veeam's Charles Clarke said that from 2014 through to 2016, there will be a much larger adoption of Big Data in Australia.
"For me, Big Data and the Cloud fall into the same category. It describes a methodology rather than a technology, so companies are going to leverage the opportunities that they both present to achieve results that are meaningful for them," Clarke said.
Going forward, he claimed that the analysed data will be part of the Cloud diaspora pulled from a variety of sources and engines will be smarter in terms of providing that data, making it almost "Big Brother like".
"Remembering that we live in a connected world, organisations are going to be increasingly influenced by information that's becoming available. The battle for access to that information and the analysis of it is clearly a battleground that they will have to play in," Data#3's John Grant said.
