Big Data Tops Indian CIOs List of Over-Hyped Technologies

Indian CIOs are still somewhat underwhelmed with big data at present, as 26 percent of those surveyed in the CIO Mid-Year Review 2014 found it to be “overhyped technology.” Nevertheless, this is less than the 33 percent who found it to be overhyped last year. An article at CIO India observes how attitudes toward big data are changing in the long run.

Baby Steps for Big Data

Service industry CIOs turn out to be the ones who find it most overhyped, and in fact the number of them finding it overhyped has increased since last year. There are no plans to use big data at all by 37 percent of Indian CIOs. Here is one especially interesting point as to why attitudes about big data are still ambivalent:

The high numbers of CIOs who believe big data is hype probably has to do with the high number of Indian enterprises who don’t distinguish ‘big data’ from ‘data’ (in that they need distinct tools and management approaches for higher volume, complexity and dynamic data processing)

According to CIO research, 48 percent of CIOs say that their organizations do not distinguish big data from data. That said, 32 percent of CIOs said their organizations do make the distinction, and the rest were not sure.
