bid data apac ?At the repeatable and managed stages, organizations begun to realize the business value of their BDA investment, and some created new product and services to bring in new revenue streams, says Qiao Li, senior market analyst for Big Data and analytics research. However, more than 65 percent of organizations in the region remain at the first two stages and take an ad hoc or opportunistic approach. This majority has just started their BDA journey, learning and experimenting BDA technologies to address business challenges. Data-rich industries like financial services, communications and media, and services (including Internet companies) are leading in cross-divisional adoption and capitalization of their data assets. Countries differ in maturity progression. Korea is one of the fastest-growing countries in terms of BDA maturity, moving ahead of Singapore. On the other hand, Hong Kong has progressed the least in the past year. This year, Australia, New Zealand, Korea and Singapore are leading in BDA maturity in Asia Pacific (excluding Japan), followed by Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, and India. Emerging Asean countries remain as the starters in the maturity curve. Key differentiators for thrivers According to IDC, organizations who achieved success with their Big Data and analytics initiatives displayed the following traits:

? Established a BDA strategy and data-driven culture across the enterprise

? Data quality governed by centralized processes, metrics and methods

? A central architecture board governed all BDA deployments

? Collaboration process in place among staff to share relevant data, metrics, and best practices

? Data management and analysis process are defined, measured, and managed based on clearly understood metrics

“Availability of skilled resources is a common roadblock to BDA initiatives among APEJ organizations. Organizations can consider looking to develop internally on BDA skills through sharing resources, training, and partnering with service providers. It will be crucial to establish a data-driven culture and encourage knowledge sharing to develop internal capabilities,” commented Chwee Chua, AVP for analytics, Big Data and cognitive systems research in IDC Asia-Pacific.]]>
