More than half of the 2,250 big data professionals at 1,400 companies worldwide organizations surveyed by business intelligence software provider AtScale said they are deploying big data in the cloud today, and 72% plan on doing so in the future.
The survey, conducted in collaboration with Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR, Cognizant, Trifacta and Tableau, showed that nearly 70% of those surveyed have been using big data for more than a year, and about three quarters have more than 10 nodes. A huge majority (95%) of the respondents have achieved positive value from big data efforts or are anticipating they will.
Other key findings of the report: 97% of respondents will do as much or more with big data over the next three months; more than 53% are using the cloud for their big data deployment today and 14% have all their big data in the cloud; and two-thirds view big data as “strategic” or “game changing”, while only 19% of respondents consider it “experimental”.
“There’s been a clear surge in use of big data in the cloud over the last year, and what’s perhaps as interesting is the fact that respondents are far more likely to achieve tangible value when their data is in the cloud,” said Matt Baird, AtScale CTO and co-founder.
