Lack of in-house skills and adequate tools to address data quality issues are some of the main barriers to the adoption of big data by local organisations.
This is according to a recent online Big Data Survey conducted by ITWeb. The survey found that most organisations are good at collecting and storing data, but few have the skills and the tools needed to extract, analyse and use data to create lasting value for the business.
