Gartner: Big Data Will Drive $32 Billion of IT Spending in 2013

Gartner is reporting that Big Data is forecast to drive $34 billion of IT spending in 2013.

Despite the hype, big data is not a distinct, stand-alone market, it but represents an industrywide market force which must be addressed in products, practices and solution delivery,” said Mark Beyer, research vice president at Gartner. “In 2011, big data formed a new driver in almost every category of IT spending. However, through 2018, big data requirements will gradually evolve from differentiation to ‘table stakes’ in information management practices and technology. By 2020, big data features and functionality will be non-differentiating and routinely expected from traditional enterprise vendors and part of their product offerings.”
