Gazzang Predicts: 2013 The Year Big Data Goes Big-Time

Wrapping up a year of impressive growth and product innovation, Gazzang, the Linux data security company, today made its 2013 predictions covering emerging trends in big data, the cloud and open source technology adoption.

“Buoyed by increasing adoption of and trust in cloud technologies, big data will move out of the shadows and start to creep into the boardroom,” said Larry Warnock, CEO of Gazzang. “While big data is already a conversation topic at most enterprises, it’s traditionally been relegated to IT and development projects. Next year, these organizations will start to see big data as a solution for driving better business intelligence, product innovation and customer service.”

Additional Gazzang predictions include:

  • The first significant big data company acquisitions will happen, signaling a shift in focus from proof-of-concept projects to high-business-value implementations/rollouts.
  • Vertical line of business applications on top of big data will start to explode, with some early examples already starting to emerge in retail, financial services and oil and gas.
  • What IBM does, others eventually follow. To that end, the industry will see more corporate policy established around cloud storage such as Dropbox – and more technical solutions developed to enforce these policies.
  • Product differentiation will focus less on infrastructure and more on application and service layers. As a result, more big brands will start open sourcing their architecture to encourage adoption and attract development talent, similar to what Netflix and Disney are already doing.
  • OpenStack is not overhyped as suggested by Gartner, but will succeed as an alternative to Amazon by providing security features such as default encryption and cloud entropy/randomization, and deliver solutions for companies that want on-premises cloud infrastructure.
  • A damaging big data breach will cause the market to question holes and vulnerabilities in NoSQL infrastructure.
  • As encryption and multi-factor authentication become more broadly adopted for cloud security, key management will become the new challenge. Solutions will need to provide strong policy enforcement and compliance capabilities, while maintaining high levels of flexibility and availability.
  • Audit and compliance mandates will be imposed on the "wild west" of big data projects. On a related note, we will see the first big rash of class-action lawsuits related to big data breaches, adding millions of dollars to the costs of these incidents.
  • Higher integration of structured and unstructured data will lead to greater insights for organizations and drive even greater adoption of big data.

Contextual Analytics of various threat data provides a deeper understanding of a given threat and enables identification of unknown threat vectors. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Dufour, Head of Security Architecture, IoT, Webroot, Inc., discussed how through the use of Big Data analytics and deep data correlation across different threat types, it is possible to gain a better understanding of where, how and to what level of danger a malicious actor poses to an organization, and to determ...
To Really Work for Enterprises, MultiCloud Adoption Requires Far Better and Inclusive Cloud Monitoring and Cost Management … But How? Overwhelmingly, even as enterprises have adopted cloud computing and are expanding to multi-cloud computing, IT leaders remain concerned about how to monitor, manage and control costs across hybrid and multi-cloud deployments. It’s clear that traditional IT monitoring and management approaches, designed after all for on-premises data centers, are falling short in ...
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. ...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
