This IDC study presents the state of competition of the major vendors in the Japan Big Data software market. The new business due to the so-called systems of engagement (SoE) will bring new developments in the Big Data and analytics market. In this area, system infrastructure that both minimizes the development period and investment, and maximizes the number of trials for new business will be in demand. For this reason, platform as a service (PaaS) use will be particularly invigorated, and the position of platform deployment integrating conventional software will flag, bringing about a change in the structure of the market. The analysis of IDC Japan Software and Security Market Analyst Shintaro Kusachi is this: "The expansion of the Big Data technologies market will provide opportunities for short-term growth to new vendors entering the market, but in order to achieve mid- to long-term business expansion, those vendors will need to build ecosystems that anticipate what is to come in the new market environment."
