This IDC study assesses the market for Big Data and Analytics (BDA) solutions among 11 top global vendors with a presence in Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) and identifies their strengths and challenges. This assessment discusses both quantitative and qualitative characteristics that position vendors for success in this promising market. A comprehensive framework is used to evaluate various capabilities of big data and analytics solutions, ranging from big data management, integration platforms, and analytics tools to cognitive/AI software capabilities.
Kar Leong Tew, research manager, IDC, states, "Big data and analytics is one of the most common activities undertaken within the lines of business (LOBs) of any organization. Although it represents the huge potential of this domain, the challenges ahead for them is equally large. Scalability and reliability may not always be the priority when it is a project/proof of concept (POC) within an LOB. Selecting the right framework, platforms, and solutions to invest your data science resources is key to ensure scalability and extension into cognitive/AI solutions for your businesses."
