Cloud and big data 'transforming IT depts'

11/27/2012 | Data centers |

The IT industry has never been a sector known for standing still. There's always something new and exciting for professionals to get to grips with and implement if they want their company to stay at the cutting edge. In recent years, two of the biggest buzzwords have been the cloud and big data. It's been noted that these are solutions that often come together, as they complement each other perfectly.

For the uninitiated, the cloud involves storing data and application online at remote data centres, allowing users to access information and programs wherever they are, at any time. This had many advantages for businesses as it gives them access to powerful tools that would otherwise be out of their reach and greatly increases the amount of data they can handle.

This makes it ideal for dealing with big data, as it's scalability means it has practically unlimited storage capacity, allowing firms to collect more information than ever before. And as the powerful analytics tools required for extracting value from this can also be hosted and accessed remotely, it makes sense for you to investigate both technologies if you're looking to improve your IT operations to drive growth.

One organisation that recently highlighted the value of the two technologies was research firm Gartner, which described big data as the "killer app" that will drive more firms towards cloud tools, which will be the foundation of many firms' systems. Networking specialist Cisco has also observed the fusion between cloud computing and big data, with the firm's chief technology officer in the UK and Ireland Ian Foddering telling Cloud Tech the full impact of the trends has yet to be seen.

However, it was noted by the company the explosive growth in data, coupled with faster and more reliable networks, has led to many IT departments looking at the solutions. Cloud watchers everywhere will be observing the situation very closely to determine how the influence of the technologies transform the landscape. Therefore, it might be something all businesses have to look into in the coming years if they want to keep up with their rivals.
