This IDC study presents IDC's top 10 predictions for the formative high-performance data analysis (HPDA) market (i.e., the market for big data requiring HPC technology). This market covers the convergence of long-standing data-intensive simulations and newer methods for handling advanced data analytics. Market participants include established HPC sites, many of whom are adding analytics to their customary simulation workloads; commercial firms adopting HPC for the first time to tackle mission-critical data analytics challenges that enterprise server technology can't handle well alone; and TAM-expanding vendors moving in the HPC enterprise direction and vice versa.
"IDC forecasts that the global HPDA ecosystem market will continue growing robustly to reach about $4.9 billion in 2019," said Steve Conway, IDC research vice president for HPC and HPDA. "Data-intensive simulation will expand rapidly, driven by powerful new scientific instruments, sensor networks, and brawnier HPC systems. Advanced analytics at existing HPC sites and a growing contingent of new commercial HPC adopters will help power this convergence market."
