In November 2016, SAP commissioned Forrester Consulting to evaluate current trends in big data, learn whether firms were getting everything they needed from their big data solutions, and determine what specifically the shortfalls were. To do so, Forrester conducted a survey of 150 IT and operations decision makers responsible for their organization’s big data strategy at organizations in the U.S., the U.K., and Germany.
This white paper describes how 76 percent of firms surveyed are implementing or plan to implement a single platform for processing advanced analytics to overcome their big data challenges. Most of these firms are trying to build their platforms on Hadoop. As firms gain experience, they need to supplement Hadoop with additional capabilities, which add complexity and cost.
