Big Data 2015: Top 100 Influencers and Brands

by | Jan 21, 2015 | Influencer Lists,

Big data has received a lot of attention in the past couple of years from major companies as well as online communities. This is not surprising as there are claims (and proof) that big data can solve big problems and transform entire markets in just years. 87% of enterprises believe Big Data analytics will redefine the competitive landscape of their industries within the next three years. Businesses like GE and Accenture are spending massive amounts of money in studies that involve how the cloud, the internet of things and big data analytics are changing their industries.

The “industrial internet” is projected to be worth around $500B in 2020 made up of the sales of hardware, software and services. If you’re keen to learn more about how big data and the industrial internet are changing entire market segments be sure to grab this report from Accenture and General Electric that contains plenty of insights and data!

Mapping the Debate

At Onalytica we have analysed the online #BigData discussion by looking at over 400,000 tweets from around 80,000 users to present you the most influential individuals and brands that drive this online discussion.

When looking closely at the map we discovered that there is a very engaged community of individuals (red lines on the map) driving the debate. On the other hand the brands seem to be less engaging and that shows that there are good opportunities for brands to create online attention amongst individuals that are interested in big data.
