For the third consecutive year, GoDataDriven collaborated with Big Data Expo to conduct Big Data Survey. Over 800 professionals participated in this third edition of Big Data Survey and shared their insights and experiences on topics like data strategy, implementing data science, technology, cloud, gdpr, and how to become attractive as an employer.
What Makes a Data Strategy Successful?
As in the first two editions of Big Data Survey, vision (87%) remains the most important aspect of a successful Big Data strategy, followed by talent (54%) and, last year’s number two, support from the management (50%).
Improving data quality is the largest challenge when it comes to implementing data infrastructure, followed by making data available and implementing data governance.
“Our management has a clear vision of the type of data products our organization needs to realize. We are constantly working to collect more data that supports us in executing our Big Data Strategy”, says Erik van Osenbruggen, Operational Manager at Promovendum/CAK Group
Although 9 out of every 10 organizations see lots of potential with data, data are primarily applied in dashboards and not so much to develop predictive models. The number of websites that are personalized in real-time using artificial intelligence is still very limited.
