Big data is a relative measure for each organization, with big implying more volume, more sources and higher value  Data analytics solutions are evolving to be real-time, granular to individual customers and combine data from multiple sources.

The insights provided by the data analytics need to be timely, relevant and actionable CSPs find it useful to develop a strategic plan for data analytics that has a long-term vision, but at the same time build the implementations incrementally, beginning with individual use cases CSPs should have a clearly appointed analytics project owner at the strategic level who can ensure the overall strategy, processes for combining data, sourcing systems, selecting vendors etc 1 2 3
