Firms in the UK and Europe are setting aside significant funds for advanced big data deployments this year, according to new research.
TechTarget’s new IT Spending Priorities survey, published last week (February 26th) by Computer Weekly, indicates that one in four organisations (26 per cent of respondents) will invest in business intelligence and data warehousing this year.
Furthermore, some 12 per cent intend to start shifting their information assets to more sophisticated database technologies – such as NoSQL, columnar and in-memory analytics – than those that they use today.
In the UK, however, TechTarget noted an imbalance between respondents’ plans to invest in analytics and in backend data management – just eight per cent told researchers they would be upgrading the systems behind the scenes of their big data deployments.
Across the EU’s two-biggest economies, France and Germany, the figure was almost double that at 15 per cent.
