That’s why it’s so gratifying to see the uptake of big data across the industry spectrum. It’s not just the survey results that columnist Louis Columbus talked about last week, in which 84% of enterprises see big data changing their industries in the next year. Or the results Mike Wheatley recently noted in his Silicon Angle blog, based on a joint Accenture/General Electric looking at the so-called “industrial Internet.” In the latter, 66% of executives believe that there’s “an urgent need to adopt big data technologies to avoid losing their market position.”
But the uptake isn’t limited to industrialized or retail enterprises. We’re talking public sector, fashion, and even television.
