The year 2015 was an important one in the world of big data. What used to
be hype became the norm as more businesses realized that data, in all forms
and sizes, is critical to making the best possible decisions. In 2016, we’ll see
continued growth of systems that support non-relational or unstructured
forms of data as well as massive volumes of data. These systems will evolve
and mature to operate well inside of enterprise IT systems and standards.
This will enable both business users and data scientists to fully realize the
value of big data.
Each year at Tableau, we start a conversation about what’s happening in
the industry. The discussion drives our list of the top big-data trends for the
following year. These are our predictions for 2016.
