    A new survey of 516 IT professionals, conducted by King Research on behalf of Actuate, a builder of open source BIRT reporting tools, found on average that organizations are planning to use 4.5 Big Data applications each, and organizations with revenue of over $1 billion reported they already have 3.2 Big Data applications in use.
