@BigDataExpo | #BigData Analytics Ready for Prime Time [@Syncsort]

Syncsort, a global leader in Big Data integration solutions, announced the results from a multi-stage industry survey conducted over the first half of 2014 which show enterprise IT decision makers are making serious strategic commitments to Big Data migration and analytics programs, signaling an industry evolution from trial to action. Syncsort polled over 100 IT decision makers, ranging from data scientists, data architects, developers and IT managers at the recent Hadoop Summit in San Jose and the Cloudera Session in Boston.
