Big Data Applications Start to Gain Traction

For all the talk about Big Data being a nascent technology, it turns out there have been quite a few Big Data application projects under way.

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.

Clearly, Big Data is starting to move from theory into actual practice at a fairly rapid pace.
