What to expect of big data in 2017
Scott Gnau, chief technology officer at Hortonworks, sees two key themes making an important impact on the growth and transformation of big data. First, data in real-time is transforming everything. Consumers are finding this to be true, and as IoT hits the mainstream, the trend towards real-time data will continue to explode upon practices involving big data. Second, for a variety of organizations, this will drive the need for connected data architectures to draw out value from raw material. The impact is already profound in every industry and will only grow larger this year.
