Big Data Proves Tough to Implement

Posted on 6.17.2015

CA Technologies has recently released its latest study on the state of big data and the benefits and obstacles that companies are experiencing when trying to leverage the technology.

The study, titled “The State of Big Data Infrastructure: Benchmarking Global Big Data Users to Drive Future Performance”, reveals the top five obstacles companies must overcome in order to successfully leverage big data. According to the study, the top five obstacles are “insufficient existing infrastructure (32 percent), organizational complexity (27 percent), security/compliance concerns (26 percent), lack of budget/resources (25 percent), and a lack of visibility into information and processes (25 percent).”

Yet, even with the reported obstacles 84 percent of the organizations studied have already, or plan to, implement a big data project within the next year due to the benefits the technology presents. Benefits that respondents cited include improving customer experience (60 percent) and increased revenue (88 percent).
