In 2017, did you make any predictions about what the rest of the year might bring in the big data and analytics market? We did. We predicted that 2017 would be the year that:
- Interactive exploration on the freshest data would be something users of BI and analytics would increasingly demand
- Static data models would start to be replaced by a collection of loosely integrated, federated data sets -- a new type of data warehouse
- Search-based analytics would gain greater traction as the need for speed-of-thought analytics grew
And those three trends certainly accelerated throughout 2017.
For 2018, Ruhollah Farchtchi, our CTO, has another set of predictions. And you can hear them at our 2018 predictions webinar on January 30th at 10 am PST/1 pm EST. Plus, Zoomdata’s Ian Fyfe will present the results of our O’Reilly survey on data analytics and visualization. Highlights of the survey reveal that:
- Projects are typically built for business users and business analysts who commonly rely on visual dashboards to gain the insights that they require to optimize business processes and better understand customers.
- Relational databases are the most common data source (although analytic databases and Hadoop are the most common source of big data).
- Customer 360/customer insights is the most common use case data analytics.

The webinar will close with a sneak peek at our latest product updates -- which are definitely built to capitalize on the demands we see coming in big data analytics.
