More companies are recognizing there is potentially revolutionary power trapped inside large data sets, and nearly two-thirds are willing to spend money to find out, according to a poll of 720 firms conducted by Gartner. "For Big Data, 2013 is the year of experimentation and early deployment," said Gartner's Frank Buytendijk. "Adoption is still at the early stages with less than 8% of all respondents indicating their organization has deployed Big Data solutions. Twenty percent are piloting and experimenting, 18% are developing a strategy, 19% are knowledge gathering, while the remainder has no plans or don't know."
Big Data investment up, but adoption still lags, Gartner says
