Growing Trend of Edge Computing to Surge Big Data Analytics Tools Demand

The increase in connected IoT devices volume, owing to the surging adoption of Machine Learning (ML) algorithms, Internet of Things (IoT), and Artificial Intelligence (AI). According to the International Data Corporation (IDC) data, 152,200 IoT devices are expected to connect per minute by 2025. The increasing requirement of connected devices accelerates the execution of edge computing. Edge computing solutions are defined as a structure where the processors are placed closer to the destination or source for data instead of clouds.

Data located close to destination or source saves time for uploading data on the on-premises or cloud platforms and sinks the load on network and servers. Along with, the ability to method data in quicker response time and real-time, edge computing can be particularly applied to Industrial IoT. For instance,

  • In May 2021, Telefonica Tech, a digital business company, formed collaboration with Microsoft on Azure Edge Zone. Through this collaboration Telefonica combined its 5G connectivity with Microsoft Edge computing competences, enabling industrial processes to bolster digital transformation.

Thus, the rising adoption of edge computing to further boost database quantity is projected to create lucrative opportunities for the market.


Increasing Adoption of Database across Industries to Bolster Market Growth

The increasing digital solutions, across business sectors such as banking, healthcare, BFSI, retail, agriculture, and telecom/media, worldwide are significantly increasing data. For instance, artificial intelligence brings a noteworthy change in risk management, precision farming, and pest control in the agriculture sector.

Smart machines, soil sensors, and GPS-equipped tractors generate a massive volume of data sets. To analyze huge data sets, such as advanced risk assessment, supply tracks, natural trends, ideal crops, and more, big data analytics is being applied in agriculture.

Similarly, industries are executing bots to reform and automate the working scenarios. Furthermore, virtual assistants, such as Google Assistants, Apple’s Siri, and Amazon Alexa, generate huge data. For instance, according to the Statista report published in January 2021, the number of digital voice assistants is anticipated to reach 8.2 billion. Advancements in smartphone technology and network connectivity boosted the growth of social media users worldwide.

A massive volume of data is being generated from Facebook, WhatsApp chats, YouTube videos, Instagram, Snapchat, and other platforms. Hence, with advanced technologies in the industries, growing adoption of smart applications, and emerging social media platforms, the industrial revolution is anticipated to produce enormous databases. Thus, rising database across industries is projected to fuel the big data analytics market.
