Current technology trends are converging around four main technologies – Cloud Computing/Virtualisation, Social Media, Mobility and Big Data/Analytics. Each of these technologies is impacting both customers and service providers. For customers:Cloud is enabling a scalable, virtual computing environment via the internet that is leading to productivity improvements as it can be accessed from anywhere via practically any device. It is also offering an OPEX model with pay-per-use pricing – a feature many customers are leveraging to remain asset lightSocial media is emerging as the newest marketing tool. With a network on connections running into millions, it is becoming a communication tool for firms to reach their end user segments. Social media trends are also enabling firms respond to market changes faster and tailor their products/services to end user demandsSimilarly, Mobility is also another emerging productivity and communication tool. With most mobile devices being net-enabled, firms are using mobiles to stay connected to their extensive workforce Internet and social networking are driving exponential growth in the quantity of information being generated. Firms are leveraging Big Data/Analytics to gain strategic insights into business and customer trends and thereby improve decision making and minimise risks
Data Management comprises data storage infrastructure, and technologies for monitoring, coordination, administration and management of dataData Analytics includes the technologies and tools to analyze the data and generate insight from itData Consumption involves enabling the Big Data insights to work in BI and end-user applications Big Data ecosystem also includes the underlying data (structured and unstructured) and the IT infrastructure that supports itStructured data, i.e., data with named fields or row & column format resides in existing databases like RDBMS, Data Warehouse or an MPP system, vis-à-vis the unstructured data like weblogs, videos, social feeds, which is beyond the capabilities of traditional databasesWith emergence of Big Data, RDBMS, MPP and DW are transitioning to a new role of supporting Big Data management, by processing structured data sets as outputs of Hadoop or MapReduce technologies and then input for BI software and to applicationsOnce the Big Data is collected, processed and clustered, it becomes operational data, i.e., represents Big Data outcomes or serves as input data for analytics. After the data is analyzed, it becomes consumable for business users through various visualization techniques
Big Data analytics is the process of applying advanced analytic techniques to large data sets to uncover hidden patterns, unknown correlations and other useful information. Benefits of Big Data analytics have been explained in detail earlier in the report. But broadly, Big Data analytics assist companies in following ways:Take better business decisions: The most important objective of Big Data analytics is to help companies make better business decisions taking into account all the available information. This is achieved by analyzing large volumes of structured data as well as unstructured data from sources that are left unutilized by conventional business intelligence solutions. Predict and identify change: Big Data analytics helps companies closely monitor its ecosystem and discover what has changed and how should it react. It also gives the companies then ability to predict change which is crucial especially given the current uncertain macroeconomic environment.Identify new opportunities: Advanced Big Data analytics is an effective way to discover new opportunities such as new business segments, best suppliers, associate products of affinity, sales seasonality.Big Data analytics typically involves predictive analysis, data mining, statistical analysis, artificial intelligence, natural language processing, and database capabilities that support analytics (such as MapReduce, in-database analytics, in-memory databases, columnar data stores). It also involves highly skilled analytical talent, shortage of which is the biggest challenge facing the industry. In the Big Data analytics space, there are companies which provide Big Data analytics platforms and there are some which provide analytics services. Major Big Data analytics service providers are ThinkBig Analytics, Opera Solutions, MuSigma, AbsolutData, Wipro, Infosys, CSC etc. Increasing adoption of Big Data analytics across the industries presents substantial opportunities for these service providers as well as technology providers.
As organizations adjust to rapidly changing digital lifestyle of consumers worldwide, they are beginning to discover the importance of understanding and envisaging the impact of information generated from non-traditional sources such as blogs, Facebook posts, tweets, emails, smartphone applications, electronic sensors, images and YouTube videos. Big Data not only helps organizations gain a multidimensional view of their ecosystem, but also generates powerful insights that can help them execute their operations better and take meaningful decisions. Big Data is increasingly being leveraged through advanced data analytics tools and techniques, to provide organizations with a better understanding of their customers, competitors, operations, suppliers and partners. High-performance analytics that previously took days or weeks can be undertaken in seconds, minutes or hours through Big Data technologies. Private sector are adopting Big Data analytics at a large scale to generate strategic insights and improve products/services strategy, operational efficiency and gain deeper understanding of their customers, competitors and suppliers. Big Data analytics is enabling them to predict trends in near real time, make more accurate forecasts and adjust their operations quickly to changing demand or new business opportunities. Financial services: Big Data analytics can enable financial institutions to make better trading and risk decisions, protect them from frauds and security threats, and improve their products by better customer identification and marketing campaigns. Also, Big Data analytics is transitioning investment banks from relying on overnight batch data to make trading decisions. It has improved the risk decisions by leveraging real time analysis of current data rather than the risk management models based on historic data. For e.g., CITIC Bank Credit Card Center used Big Data technology to isolate customers unlikely to activate their credit card services, and direct marketing incentives to those most likely to activate, thereby, improving marketing campaign effectiveness by 65% and Westpac New Zealand used Big Data technology to analyze social media data to gain real-time insights into the bank's brand health and its product performance across different geographies by correlating specific branch performance to customer’s social data. Healthcare: The surge of large volumes of clinical data on medication, allergies, and procedures owing to implementation of electric health records have led healthcare companies to seek opportunities to predict and react more rapidly to critical clinical events, resulting in better care for patients and more effective cost management. Examples include several of the United States’ largest integrated delivery networks such as Cleveland Clinic, MedStar, University Hospitals, St. Joseph Health System, Catholic Health Partners and Summa Health System that use Big Data platform for real-time exploration, performance and predictive analytics of clinical data. Manufacturing: Companies are increasingly leveraging Big Data and finding new opportunities to predict maintenance problems, enhance manufacturing quality and reduce costs using Big Data. For e.g., Volvo leverages Big Data to analyze hoards of information being received from its vehicles, customer relationship management systems, product development and design systems, etc., to identify, in advance, potential issues such as manufacturing and mechanical problems and proactively resolve the problem by adjusting its manufacturing process. Telecommunications: Companies in the telecom industry are increasingly relying on real time analysis of data generated by mobile devices including phone calls, text messages, applications, and web browsing for better customer service and to build on retention and loyalty. For instance, while Nokia collects huge amount of unstructured data from phones in use, services, log files and other sources and uses it to gain insights and understand collective behaviors of consumers to improve the quality of its phones and their features, Cablecom deploys Big Data analytics to identify when a customer was most likely to make a decision to leave its network and offered special deals and incentives to retain the customer at the right time. Retail: With huge amount of data being generated from point of sale at stores, online transactions, social media posts, etc., Big Data offers numerous opportunities to retailers for improvement in marketing, merchandising, operations, supply chain and development of new business model. Retailers are deploying Big Data analytics to improve the accuracy of forecasts, anticipate changes in demand and then react accordingly. For e.g., active membership of Sears’ loyalty program showed a marked increase and crossed 80 million customers by using Big Data analytics. Other industries: Other than these verticals, benefits of Big Data can be applied to other industries as well. Data intensive verticals like utilities, oil & gas, and transportation, where data is generated through smart meters, GPS systems, satellites, etc. are also gradually using Big Data analytics to make real time predictions of their operations.
Game developers and brands have an opportunity to apply these Big Data analytics techniques to capture rich and varied behavioral and multi-structured game and player data
Surging demand for tools that can analyze massive volumes of structured and unstructured data has caught investor attention globally. In recent months, venture and growth capital firms have invested huge amount in Big Datacompanies, primarily to enable them to expand their operations. While Big Data firms across the globe have been receiving funding, Indian companies have also raised funding to boost their Big Data capabilities.Further, to capitalize on the growth momentum of Big Data industry, Indian service providers are leveraging partnerships and collaborations as well as acquisitions to expand their analytical capabilities beyond India. Also, players like MuSigma who are one of the early providers of data analytics are also expanding their overseas operations to cater to the surging demand of Big Data.
The most important thing is the ability to make sense and extract wisdom from the data. Leveraging the Big Data opportunity could face a talent and skills issue. The biggest effort for Indian service providers will be to develop a skilled workforce capable of generating value-adding insights from the data. This will call for huge investments and innovation in creating and grooming a new breed of talent. However, to solve problems such as these, it requires people with multifaceted skills: knowledge of advanced statistical techniques, modeling capabilities, strong understanding of the business context, customer insights, perhaps even some knowledge of regulations and programming.Today, there are not enough multifaceted people in the workforce; and the best education systems in the world are not designed to produce such industry-ready talent. While India produces huge number of graduates and software engineers every year, as well as has some graduates in statistics or other decision sciences MBAs, software engineers and statisticians are individuals with differing skill sets, but, Big Data analytics requires an individual to combine the capabilities of a statistician, a software engineer and an MBA - the pool of individuals, who combine such complementary skill sets. India is at an advantage vis-à-vis other geographies, as apart ample graduates each year, companies in India are also making huge investments in breeding and grooming such talent. Also, India retains advantages due to demographic factors, and the fact that the education system is producing a huge pool of analytical talent.
Rising demand for Big Data analytics is expected to lead to a global shortfall of professionals who can leverage Big Data to positively affect business results for organizations. According to a survey by EMC, two-third of organizations surveyed expect the demand for data scientists to outpace supply over the next five years, while one-third cite lack of employee skills as the biggest obstacle barrier to data science adoption.Recruitment and training are the main obstacles in growth of the Big Data industry, owing to heavy demand and limited capacity to train new talent. Companies have begun recruiting new talent from universities, and also collaborate with academic institutions to launch Big Data analytics courses. For Example, the Northwestern University recently launched a Master of Science degree in Predictive Analytics, in collaboration with IBM. However, Big Data analyticsas an integrated discipline has just emerged in academic curriculum, and it would be a while before academic institutions begin to serve as a robust supply source for Big Data professionals.Further, enterprises need to create organizational cultures that are conducive to data-driven decision making by:Effective recruitment: While recruiting new talent, focus should shift from business oriented degrees to other academic fields such as hard sciences, statistics, and mathematics. Further, candidates should be tested for intellectual curiosity and technical depth to addressBig Data challengesOn-the-job training: Companies should invest in providingon-the-job training in emerging technologies of Big Data, to eliminate skill gaps in their existing workforceIndian enterprises and academia have also begun to address the Big Data skills shortage. Technology firms such as EMC, Oracle, and IBM are planning to work with universities in India and overseas to introduce full-length electives or crash courses on various facets of Big Data. Training organizations such as NIITand Aptech are also exploring the Big Data space to design curricula for developing specialized skilled talent for theBig Data industry.
