Jaspersoft reccently shared results from its Big Data Survey. Nearly 1,600 Jaspersoft community members responded to the survey on enterprise use of big data in corporate decision-making — 60 percent of respondents were application developers.
The follow-up to Jaspersoft’s August 2012 survey, revealed a greater commitment to big data projects. While 42 percent reported still being in the process of experimenting or performing general research, 36 percent have a funded big data initiative compared to only 15 percent 14 months ago.
What we’re seeing from our community is a better understanding of big data and more willingness to commit to projects,” said Brian Gentile, CEO of Jaspersoft. “The survey suggests that experimental big data projects are on the rise while funded initiatives continue to increase as the tools and understanding of big data mature.”
Of the 56 percent of respondents with big data projects, 32 percent are in production or in development while 23 percent are in the planning stage. Of deployments, 66 percent are on-premises with 34 percent in the cloud. The survey reveals that confusion and lack of business justification have decreased as reasons for not pursuing big data projects.
