This study describes IDC's definition of Big Data, references Big Data and analytics software market taxonomy, and describes the various on/off-premises storage platforms and architecture hosting BDA software and technologies. IDC expects storage to dominate the Big Data and analytics infrastructure stack as data volumes are exploding in the digital transformation and Internet of Things (IoT) era. Leading digital organizations are exploiting data insights to deliver personalized value services, optimize customer experience, explore new opportunities, and reduce the overall cost of doing business. Simple, flexible, agile, and cost-efficient storage that can scale and extend to multicloud environments is vital to meet enterprise demands of Big Data storage. </P><P>"IDC's worldwide storage for Big Data and analytics taxonomy represents a comprehensive view of the worldwide BDA storage market," said Ritu Jyoti, research director, Storage. "It continues to be the premier source for defining and categorizing commercial BDA storage and a basis for IDC's market sizing and forecasting of this market."</P> Taxonomy Thu, 25 May 2017 04:00:00 GMT Ritu Jyoti OpenStack Infrastructure Ecosystem: Adoption Patterns, Use Cases, and Market Outlook, Part 1 <P>This IDC study is the first in a three-part special report entitled <I>OpenStack Infrastructure Ecosystem: Adoption Patterns, Use Cases, and Market Outlook.</I> This first document in the series includes IDC's analysis and opinions on the state of OpenStack adoption and use in 2017 and the challenges that exist to broader OpenStack deployment. This document is supplemented with insights from OpenStack users based on IDC research and end-user discussions over the past several years.</P><P>"OpenStack as a community and an open source cloud framework has continued to gain acceptance and maturity among enterprises, service providers, research organizations, and internet companies. This interest speaks to the goals cloud operators have in reducing cost, increasing efficiency, and better aligning infrastructure capabilities with new business objectives," said Laura DuBois, group vice president at IDC. "Deployment of an OpenStack cloud often comes with an understanding that cloud is the underlying platform for innovation. This innovation coming in the form of new applications is being developed by DevOps or line-of-business organizations."</P> Special Study Thu, 25 May 2017 04:00:00 GMT Brad Casemore, Gary Chen, Laura DuBois, Ashish Nadkarni Facebook F8 2017: Previewing Digital's Sensory Future <P>This IDC Market Note analyzes F8's announcements and executives' messaging in context, with guidance for a broad range of market participants that will be influenced by Facebook's actions and motivations. Facebook is poised to drive the transformation of content and media, with profound implications for incumbents in those markets, as well as Facebook's own future well beyond social networking and messaging.
