IDC's Asia/Pacific Events
The measure of information in our reality has been blasting, and investigating substantial information sets—supposed enormous information will turn into a key premise of competition, supporting new influxes of efficiency development, advancement, and customer surplus, as per research by IDC.
Leaders in every sector will have to grapple with the implications of big data, not just a few data-oriented managers. The increasing volume and detail of information captured by enterprises, the rise of multimedia, social media, and the Internet of Things will fuel exponential growth in data for the foreseeable future.
A key characteristic of these organizations is that they are able to "see" and sense everything and everyone that is connected. IDC research shows that by 2020, organizations able to analyze all relevant data and deliver actionable information will achieve an extra $430 billion in productivity benefits over their less analytically oriented peers.
As more things and people connect, vast amounts of data will be generated, creating opportunities to learn about customers, streamline business processes, flatten organizational structures, and transform industries. To be competitive, organizations also need to be able to "know" everything, understanding this deluge of data and put it into the context of the business. This requires a clear vision of the strategic goals of Big Data and Analytics (BDA), the right investments in powerful new technologies, and a cultural shift toward analytically-oriented decisions and processes.
IDC research shows that through BDA technology investments are increasing across Asia/Pacific at 34% YoY for the next few years. This rapid growth in investment is creating a divide between the organizations that "know" and the ones that do not.
Another dimension is that we are entering a new period of computing history — the cognitive computing era. IDC research shows that by 2020, 50% of all business analytics software will incorporate prescriptive analytics built on cognitive systems functionality.
Cognitive systems offers fundamental differences in how systems are built and interact with humans. Cognitive-based systems, are able to build knowledge and learn, understand natural language, and reason and interact more naturally with human beings than traditional systems.
Cognitive systems can quickly identify new patterns and insights. Over time, they will simulate even more closely how the brain actually works. In doing so, they could help us solve the world’s most complex problems by penetrating the complexity of big data and exploiting the power of natural language processing and machine learning.
Are you ready to harness this opportunity? What do you need to prepare for it? How can you succeed in this hyper-competitive marketplace? During this BDA and cognitive systems event series, IDC and its partners will attempt to "demystify" these two interlinked and converging markets by exploring the consumer, government and enterprise solutions that will drive the industry forward. Also, we will examine the impact these solutions are having on traditional business and operating models.
