Frost & Sullivan’s recent analysis, Post-pandemic Growth Opportunity Analysis of the Big Data Analytics Market, predicts that the global Big Data Analytics (BDA) market is estimated to witness double-digit growth in the post-pandemic COVID-19 era. Under an aspirational forecast scenario, which assumes that the COVID-19 virus is contained by August 2020 and that global markets will be able to recover by the end of the year, the market is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 28.9%, reaching $68.09 billion by 2025 from $14.85 billion in 2019. Under the conservative forecast scenario, the market is likely to reach $41.84 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 18.8%. Depending on the development and availability of a vaccine, the conservative forecast includes a market slowdown and recovery period of 18 to 24 months.

City Planning by Guesswork is Being Replaced by Data Analysis

As new technologies keep emerging, city planning will no longer be based on guesswork as it once was. With the help of big data and analytics, things are much easier when it comes to getting the right data for planning than before. City dwellers and by extension, all citizens are walking around with data transmitters and are using different applications that gather data on their physical movements, consumer behavior, and habits. With all these assets at their disposal, city planners can predict the potential interest and movement of people and propose how and where specific areas, for example, a grocery store, can be built with accuracy.


Big Data Rules All as Organizations Grapple with Analytics & Compliance

Moore’s Law has been a constant fixture of data growth and the tech advancements required to sustain it, correctly asserting that the number of transistors on a microchip will double every year. Since 1965, this claim has gone unchallenged, with the microchip unbelievably decreasing in size while increasing in computing power. However, many cybersecurity experts and big tech are convinced that Moore’s Law may no longer be as indestructible as it once was, referencing the explosive growth of Big Data as a primary reason. Over the last two years, 90% of the world’s data has been produced, yet companies only analyze 12% of it. This missed opportunity to fully leverage the power of data analytics represents the enormous disconnect between the vast ocean of data and the organizational struggles to successfully harness it.

Three Ways to Inspire Others by Finding Your Data’s Story

Data helps organizations gain valuable insights into customers, employees, products and markets, but there is a limit to what databases and charts can do on their own. Answers to organizational problems or opportunities don’t just organically spring from algorithms—they need communicators to translate the information into compelling stories. It is data stories that ultimately bring about action and change. Applying simple story techniques to data, transforms the data from making sense to also making meaning. Adding meaning helps audiences understand the data and drives real change for business. Easy, right?


Here's How Data Analysts are Transforming Basketball

The Toronto Raptors announced that they have promoted data analyst Brittni Donaldson to assistant coach following the Raptors’ first ever NBA championship in 2019. This makes Donaldson one of ten women to join the NBA coaching staff and a growing number of data analysts to take a forefront position in the sport. In a phone interview with the Sioux City Journal, Donaldson states, ““My role is to help the coaching staff make better decisions with the data we have available. It’s been really fun. I help out with scouting reports, player evaluations and roster construction. I’ve also had opportunities to be on court a little bit to help out with player development.” Blake Murphy commends this decision. Upon hearing the news the Raptors reporter tweeted, “Brittni is incredibly smart and was already working directly with players a lot. Important to have extension of analytics department in versatile connector role.”
