We are excited to be kicking off a research project today on the potential of Big Data and Predictive Analytics in the Cloud – the Predictive Analytics in the Cloud 2013 Survey is now live. This online survey gives business, IT and analytic professionals a chance to voice their opinion about the exciting intersection of predictive analytics and cloud technologies. The survey builds on our previously published research on Predictive Analytics in the Cloud. The survey can be accessed using this link.
Predictive analytics are the most effective way to put Big Data to work. Cloud technologies both deliver new data sources and provide a scalable, pervasive platform for analytics. The intersection is creating new opportunities for value and new ways to exploit Big Data. It’s critical to understand how companies are thinking and how that thinking is evolving as these markets explode in importance. The survey will allow organizations looking to adopt or build predictive analytic solutions in the cloud to share their experience, their perspective and their plans. Participants can share their experience with predictive analytics, their opinion of the different use cases for predictive analytics in the cloud, what they see as drivers and obstacles and how they see Big Data influencing their plans and actions. The survey is anonymous and both participants and non-participants will be able to register for the survey results and other study deliverables.
The survey will close on October 4 and we will be hosting a webinar with Information Management to announce the findings on October 22 at 12:00 Eastern. Keep following the blog or register for the results to stay informed. Thanks to our research sponsors, FICO, Lityx and SAP for their support and to Information Management for helping us with promotion and distribution of the results.
So tell us what you think – take the survey here and be entered for a chance to win a $100 Amazon.com gift card.
