  2. 2. 200 U.S.-Based IT Managers Speak Out 2 We wanted to find out:   What is your understanding of big data?   How are you approaching your big data projects? An update to our 2012 survey, this report also:   Shows year-over-year evolution in the understanding of big data analytics   Demonstrates some of the progress made in big data in the enterprise Note: See our methodology in the full research report at
  3. 3. Top Five Findings 3 1.  Big data analytics is a top strategic focus. 2.  IT and stakeholders understand the value potential of big data. 3.  Big data is delivering real-world insight. 4.  The cloud and commercial versions of Apache Hadoop* are a good fit for big data analytics. 5.  Big data challenges are evolving.
