Description: The year 2015 was an important one in the world of big data. What used to be hype became the norm as more businesses realized that data, in all forms and sizes, is critical to making the best possible decisions. In 2016, we’ll see continued growth of systems that support non-relational or unstructured forms of data as well as massive volumes of data.

These systems will evolve and mature to operate well inside of enterprise IT systems and standards. This will enable both business users and data scientists to fully realize the value of big data.

TRENDS FOR 2016

BIG DATA

The year 2015 was an important one in the world of big data. What used to
be hype became the norm as more businesses realized that data, in all forms
and sizes, is critical to making the best possible decisions. In 2016, we’ll see
continued growth of systems that support non-relational or unstructured
forms of data as well as massive volumes of data. These systems will evolve
and mature to operate well inside of enterprise IT systems and standards.
This will enable both business users and data scientists to fully realize the
value of big data.
Each year at Tableau, we start a conversation about what’s happening in
the industry. The discussion drives our list of the top big-data trends for the
following year. These are our predictions for 2016.

The NoSQL
Takeover

We noted the increasing adoption of NoSQL technologies,
which are commonly associated with unstructured data,
in last year’s version of Trends in Big Data. Going forward,
the shift to NoSQL databases becoming a leading piece of
the Enterprise IT Landscape becomes clear as the benefits
of schema-less database concepts become more pronounced.
Nothing shows the picture more starkly than looking at
Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Operational Database
Management Systems which in the past was dominated
by Oracle, IBM, Microsoft and SAP. In contrast, in the most
recent Magic Quadrant, we see the NoSQL companies,
including MongoDB, DataStax, Redis Labs, MarkLogic and
Amazon Web Services (with DynamoDB), outnumbering
the traditional database vendors in Gartner’s Leaders
quadrant of the report.

Apache
Spark
lights up
Big Data

Apache Spark has moved from a being a component of
the Hadoop ecosystem to the Big Data platform of choice
for a number of enterprises. Spark provides dramatically
increased data processing speed compared to Hadoop
and is now the largest big data open source project,
according to Spark originator and Databricks co-founder,
Matei Zaharia. We see more and more compelling enterprise
use cases around Spark, such as at Goldman Sachs where
Spark has become the “lingua franca” of big data analytics.

Hadoop
projects
mature!

Enterprises continue
their move from Hadoop
Proof of Concepts
to Production

In a recent survey of 2,200 Hadoop customers, only 3%
of respondents anticipate they will be doing less with
Hadoop in the next 12 months. 76% of those who already
use Hadoop plan on doing more within the next 3 months
and finally, almost half of the companies that haven’t
deployed Hadoop say they will within the next 12 months.
The same survey also found Tableau to be the leading
BI tool for companies using or planning to use Hadoop,
as well as those furthest along in Hadoop maturity.

Big Data
grows up:
Hadoop adds to
enterprise standards

As further evidence to the growing trend of Hadoop
becoming a core part of the enterprise IT landscape,
we’ll see investment grow in the components surrounding
enterprise systems such as security. Apache Sentry
project provides a system for enforcing fine-grained,
role based authorization to data and metadata stored
on a Hadoop cluster. These are the types of capabilities
that customers expect from their enterprise-grade RDBMS
platforms and are now coming to the forefront of the
emerging big data technologies, thus eliminating one
more barrier to enterprise adoption.

Big Data
gets fast:
Options expand to
add speed to Hadoop

With Hadoop gaining more traction in the enterprise,
we see a growing demand from end users for the same
fast data exploration capabilities they’ve come to expect
from traditional data warehouses. To meet that end user
demand, we see growing adoption of technologies such
as Cloudera Impala, AtScale, Actian Vector and Jethro Data
that enable the business user’s old friend, the OLAP cube,
for Hadoop – further blurring the lines behind the
“traditional” BI concepts and the world of “Big Data”.

The number
of options
for preparing
end users
to discover
all forms of
data grows.

Self-service data preparation tools are exploding in
popularity. This is in part due to the shift toward businessuser-generated data discovery tools such as Tableau that
reduce time to analyze data. Business users also want to
be able to reduce the time and complexity of preparing
data for analysis, something that is especially important in
the world of big data when dealing with a variety of data
types and formats. We’ve seen a host of innovation in this
space from companies focused on end user data
preparation for Big Data such as Alteryx, Trifacta, Paxata
and Lavastorm while even seeing long established ETL
leaders such as Informatica with their Rev product make
heavy investments here.

Warehouse
growth is
heating up…
in the cloud!

The “death” of the data warehouse has been overhyped for
some time now, but it’s no secret that growth in this segment
of the market has been slowing. But we now see a major shift
in the application of this technology to the cloud where
Amazon led the way with an on-demand cloud data warehouse in Redshift. Redshift was AWS’s fastest growing service
but it now has competition from Google with BigQuery,
offerings from long time data warehouse power players such
as Microsoft (with Azure SQL Data Warehouse) and Teradata
along with new start-ups such as Snowflake, winner of Strata +
Hadoop World 2015 Startup Showcase, also gaining adoption
in this space. Analysts cite 90% of companies who have adopted Hadoop will also keep their data warehouses and with
these new cloud offerings, those customers can dynamically
scale up or down the amount of storage and compute
resources in the data warehouse relative to the larger amounts
of information stored in their Hadoop data lake.

The buzzwords
converge!
IoT, Cloud and Big Data
come together.

The technology is still in its early days, but the data from
devices in the Internet of Things will become one of the
“killer apps” for the cloud and a driver of petabyte scale
data explosion. For this reason, we see leading cloud and
data companies such as Google, Amazon Web Services
and Microsoft bringing Internet of Things services to life
where the data can move seamlessly to their cloud based
analytics engines.
