Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) Big Data and Analytics 2014 Top 10 Predictions: Customer and Citizen Engagement at the Heart

LONDON, Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- just published a new market research report:

Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) Big Data and Analytics 2014 Top 10 Predictions: Customer and Citizen Engagement at the Heart

This IDC study presents the top 10 predictions for Big Data and analytics in Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan), or APEJ. Every year, IDC software analysts across the region discuss the current year and collaborate to identify the major trends that will drive the future of these markets. This market has drawn a significant amount of attention in recent years, with a lot of the discussion on what businesses cases will really justify the required investments. In 2014, we will see that the hot pursuit will be on improving customer and citizen engagement. Increasing revenue, lifetime value, brand loyalty, and information security will be top of the agenda, across industries.

These three domains of industry opportunities, technologies, and enrichment/monetization will shape discussions around investments in solutions and skills.

"In 2014, we will see Big Data and analytics initiatives treated like a magnifying glass, with the customer or citizen at the focal point," says Craig Stires, research director, Big Data and Analytics, Asia/Pacific. "Organizations will need to make sure they do not bear down so hard on privacy, that they turn that magnifying glass into a torch. Collection and sale of personal data, including geolocation data mapping an individual's daily movements, will be of very high value. The value needs to remain with individuals, as a way of providing improved citizen services, or improved consumer experiences. This year will see a significant increase in investments on Big Data and analytics infrastructure, software, and services. Customer and citizen engagement initiatives are most likely to make these win-win investments."

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
As a CIO, are your direct reports IT managers or are they IT leaders? The hard truth is that many IT managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ability. Many are unable to effectively engage and inspire, creating forward momentum in the direction of desired change. Renowned for its approach to leadership and emphasis on their people, organizations increasingly look to our military for insight into these challenges.
