Big Data and standards market research January 2016 – First published in the UK in 2016 by BSI Standards Limited.
“While Big Data is perhaps not an entirely new concept, it is certainly a hot topic of the modern, digital era. However, it is an evolving concept, and any standards created must take into account that what is classed as ‘Big Data’ today is likely to change rapidly over the next few years (and may even cease to be called ‘Big Data’). Standards must therefore look beyond the ‘here and now’ of how Big Data is currently being used and instead seek to establish frameworks for dealing with data sets that represent a significant logistical challenge. BSI wants to take a lead on Big Data standards. By engaging the market, collaboratively developing standards content and promoting best practice, it aims to provide businesses with the help they need in order to flourish. To support this journey, BSI partnered with B2B research consultants, Circle Research, to explore the Big Data opportunities and challenges facing businesses, and to understand where standards could help to play a pivotal role in driving business success and market growth.”
