Forrester: Big Data market to grow three times faster than tech overall

Led by newer kinds of databases and software for distributed storage and computing, the Big Data market is set to grow at three times the rate of the entire technology market, according to a new report from Forrester Research Inc.
Forrester’s report, “Big Data Management Solutions Forecast 2016 to 2021,” which the analyst firm claims is the first of its kind, divvies up the Big Data market into six separate chunks – namely, enterprise data warehousing, NoSQL, Hadoop, big data integration, data virtualization and in-memory data fabric. Of these, it reckons that Hadoop, NoSQL and in-memory data fabric are expected to see the most significant growth in the next six years.

Gartner’s Top 10 Strategic Technology Trends for 2017

Today, a digital stethoscope has the ability to record and store heartbeat and respiratory sounds. Tomorrow, the stethoscope could function as an “intelligent thing” by collecting a massive amount of such data, relating the data to diagnostic and treatment information, and building an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered doctor assistance app to provide the physician with diagnostic support in real-time. AI and machine learning increasingly will be embedded into everyday things such as appliances, speakers and hospital equipment. This phenomenon is closely aligned with the emergence of conversational systems, the expansion of the IoT into a digital mesh and the trend toward digital twins.
Three themes — intelligent, digital, and mesh — form the basis for the Top 10 strategic technology trends for 2017, announced by David Cearley, vice president and Gartner Fellow, at Gartner Symposium/ITxpo 2016 in Orlando, Florida. These technologies are just beginning to break out of an emerging state and stand to have substantial disruptive potential across industries.
