You may have heard chatter lately around the idea that the big data bubble might have formed a slow leak, as a new survey from Gartner recently revealed that while big data investments are still on the rise, the number of organizations buying in is falling.
This doesn’t point to the end of big data—rather, it’s likely the end of those siloed big data initiatives that often underperform. The reality is today’s connected digital economy full of meaningful data has rich potential to change operations from the ground up, and a soft-release isn’t going to cut it anymore.
Incorporating the power of big data and analytics into core competencies and entire business models could be the answer, and organizations are rapidly turning to SAP Business Suite 4 HANA (SAP S/4HANA) for those solutions. SAP S/4HANA is designed with the modern SAP Fiori user experience, helping drive insight across various industries, functions, and roles. The platform allows your business to go beyond traditional transactions and power end-to-end digitized processes from single data points.
