Big data projects gaining steam, but not due to the CIO

The number of big data projects businesses are kicking off is increasing, according to new data from Gartner. But other members of the C-suite – not the CIO – are initiating the plans.

The number of big data projects enterprises are investing in or plan to invest in have increased to 76 percent in 2015 from 73 percent in 2014, according to a Gartner survey of 437 IT and business leaders. While the increase is small, what’s perhaps more telling is that such initiatives are increasingly originating from financial, marketing and other business unit leaders, who are pressuring CIOs to collaborate with them to make sure the technology aligns with the company’s strategy.
