This week on TechRepublic, Matt Asay wrote about the rapid rate of adoption of cloud analytics in the enterprise: BI wants to live in the cloud, but IT may not let it. His article shares some great stats and industry analyst insights about cloud analytics adoption (and resistance):
- According to Howard Dresner’s Wisdom of Crowds Cloud Business Intelligence Market Study, the percentage of enterprises currently using public cloud BI increased by more than 17% from 2013 to 2014, and by more than 53% since 2012.
- Gartner data showed 45% of surveyed enterprises looking to cloud BI solutions in 2014, up from 30% the previous three years.
- Gartner analyst Joao Tapadinhas said, enterprises “will move the analytics app closer to the data,” because, he continued, “As more data sources move to the cloud, it makes more sense to also adopt cloud BI solutions because that’s where the data is. It’s easier to connect to cloud data using a cloud solution.”
SnapLogic recently extended our support for powering cloud analytics with a new set of Snaps for Google BigQuery. As explained on their website, “Google BigQuery enables super-fast, SQL-like queries against append-only tables, using the processing power of Google’s infrastructure.” SnapLogic for Google BigQuery integration is an intelligent connector, what we call Snaps, that enables customers to transfer up to petabytes of data into and out of Google’s Cloud Platform. With SnapLogic, data can be moved at any latency (batch, real-time, via triggers, and Ultra Pipelines) to meet the requirements of a diverse set of business intelligence users. With the SnapLogic Elastic Integration Platform, citizen integrators can easily extract data from a wide variety of data sources and formats and load it into Google BigQuery. Whether you’re connecting to on-premise applications, social media, mobile and big data sources, SnapLogic allows you to connect faster.
Here’s a demonstration of SnapLogic for Google BigQuery. For more information on this Snap and all of our 300+ cloud and big data integration Snaps, please contact us or check out our YouTube Channel to see SnapLogic in action.
