While many may think that the pandemic accelerated digital transformation – which in many instances it has – the momentum has slowed down quite significantly. In fact, digital transformation today is not much higher than it was before the pandemic. However, what is higher today is the percentage of companies with a higher turnover rate. They use a lot of data production tools, share data between end users, and make serious efforts to manage data.

Big data systems have become increasingly important in recent times. The benefits of using these methods include increased efficiency, better decision-making, implemented best practices for big data management, and other data insights.

Some of the big data trends include an increased focus on information quality, improved governance, application of AI and ML technologies, collaborative search, and broader use of RPA technologies. Big data systems can help organizations make better decisions, improve customer experience, overcome related challenges, and increase efficiency. In this article, we will examine some of these in detail.

So, What Is Big Data?

In a nutshell, big data is the accumulation of data that is giant in quantity (as the name would suggest). As well as its volume, big data also grows rapidly with time and complexity. For this reason, no traditional data management (DM) tools are capable of storing or processing it effectively. In light of the pandemic, big data has been largely utilized across diverse areas to resolve many complex business problems, able to totally transform processes and bring about key innovations at the same time.

Big data’s three strategies of availability, speed, and trust are what allow this particular data to perform so well and have proved to be instrumental in helping businesses navigate through tough times. Every industry from banking and telecommunications, to healthcare, government, and retail is harnessing the power of big data right now, making it one of technology’s hottest tickets.

But what can be expected this year in terms of big data? Here’s a run-through of what we at Aumcore believe will be the main data analytics trends of 2023, so you can keep an eye out.

What Are the Big Data Trends In 2023?

1. Addressing Millennials

As baby boomers retire, millennials will dominate the workplace.

What your business can do:

  • Keep your company on social media – social media is important for recruiting young employees and for keeping your company a great place to work.
  • Collaborating with schools – Collaborating with universities and colleges through programs like internships is a great way to find young talent.
  • Invest in training – Training is important for retaining employees and attracting new ones.

2. Aging employees

As the baby boomer generation retires, the labor pool will slowly grow and shrink in some areas.

What your business can do:

  • Create a flexible workplace – Offering flexible hours, part-time work, and part-time work is a way to keep older workers on board and attract millennials.
  • Increase benefits and compensation – Consider offering benefits such as a retirement plan, and health insurance and compare what you’re paying to the competition to see if you can increase your pay.
  • Increase productivity – To eliminate labor shortages, look for ways to be more productive by investing in equipment, technology, and operational efficiencies.

3. Culture is more diverse

Immigrants will provide the lion’s share of population growth and will be a source of workers in a tight labor market.

What your business can do:

  • Reach specific communities – Start recruiting immigrants by supporting individual immigrant communities through partnerships and business networks.
  • Customize your training – Contractors who hire multicultural teams should ensure that their training is tailored to meet the needs of those teams.
  • Leverage the potential of an international workforce – A diverse workforce can improve your company’s ability to grow globally.

4. The growth of virtual stores

The Internet and mobile devices are completely changing the way consumers do business.

What your business can do:

  • Strengthen your online presence – build a digital environment for your business, including a user-friendly website with e-commerce capabilities and social media pages.
  • Learn how to attract customers online – Once your digital environment is set up, run a few simple campaigns, using tools like Facebook Ads or Google AdWords to learn how to drive traffic most cheaply.
  • Continuous improvement work – Take action, measure results, and make changes to improve.

5. Automation of business operations

Robots and artificial intelligence (AI) are used for many tasks. But automation isn’t just for robots: technology systems like ERP and CRM can increase productivity and reduce costs by automating tasks.

What your business can do:

  • Map your business process – A process map can provide insight into the tasks you need to work on first. This analysis, in turn, will lead you to the technical solution that provides the most value for your business.
  • Involve your employees – Employees with a thorough knowledge of your business processes and valuable resources in system selection and implementation. If left to their own devices, they may resist using new technologies.
  • Compare prices – Do your due diligence to find the best system for your business. Many contractors gravitate toward traditional methods, but off-the-shelf products will often do the job for less and less headaches down the road.

6. The rise of economic data

Businesses can collect and process vast amounts of data to uncover important business insights, thanks to the Internet and mobile communications.

What your business can do:

  • Know your customers – Small businesses can better understand their customers and take advantage of marketing opportunities by using tools like online surveys, data analysis programs, and social media listening tools.
  • Tailor your offerings – Data collected from your website, CRM system, and other sources can help you tailor your products and services based on your customers’ needs and preferences.
  • Improve your performance with a dashboard – By measuring your performance in key areas, you can evaluate your performance against internal goals or external indicators.

Data Analytics Future Trends

We’ve identified data and research methods that represent business, marketing, and technology that you can’t afford to ignore. These measures also help prioritize investments to drive growth, efficiency, resilience, and innovation.

The AI system is flexible

As decision-making becomes more integrated, reflexive, and continuous, it becomes more important to streamline decisions. You can do this by using an adaptive AI system, which can provide quick and flexible decisions by making changes and changes quickly.

However, to create and manage flexible AI systems, take an AI engineering approach. AI engineering organizes and optimizes applications to adapt, resist or achieve disruption, making it easier to manage the process of change.

Data-centric AI

Many companies are trying to overcome AI without considering the data management problems specific to AI. As such, aligning data-centric AI with data-centric AI is important. They handle data manipulation, classification, and naming as part of your data management strategy, including, for example, using Data Fabric and automated metadata-enabled data entry and management.

Metadata-based data structure

Data Fabric listens, learns, and acts on metadata. It informs and supports behavior for people and systems. Ultimately, this improves the reliability and use of data in the organization and can reduce various data management tasks including design, implementation, and operations by 70%.

Always share data

While data and analytics leaders often recognize that data sharing is a key enabler for digital transformation, they lack the know-how to share data with scale and confidence. To effectively improve data sharing and increase access to the right data aligned with business cases, collaborate across business lines and organizations.

This will give you the ability to increase your investment in data distribution. Additionally, consider adopting a data management plan to enable an organization to share data between internal and external data sources.

Critical analysis

Analysis of issues based on graphics technology. Information about the user’s location and needs is stored in graphs that allow deeper analysis using relationships between data objects as well as the data themselves. It helps identify and create alternatives based on similarities, constraints, paths, and communities.

Capturing, storing, and using contextual data requires capabilities and skills in building data pipelines, X-analytic systems, and AI cloud services that can process various types of data. By 2025, contextual analytics and AI models will replace 60% of existing models based on traditional data.

To Summarize

Trust us when we say that the future is data – with big data is growing so fast that it’s pretty difficult to put it into context or words. The important thing to take away is that big data is certainly here to stay, so it’s a good idea to start adapting your business, accordingly, based on some of the trends we’ve explored above.

It’s not really a question of if you’ll have to start utilizing these data sets in your daily business routine, but more of a case of when you’ll be implementing them. By embracing big data, you’ll not only reap the rewards of improved all-around efficiency, but you’ll also find that adapting will provide valuable dividends for your business too.
