According to Inhi Suh, IBM vice president of big data, integration, and governance, businesses in 2014 will sharpen their focus on big data. Moreover, they will place a greater emphasis than they did in 2013 on analytics projects, data-related security and privacy, and a new generation of cognitive-intelligence applications. And they will even find a seat at the boardroom table for a new executive—the chief data officer (CDO).
Suh’s 2014 predictions are based, in part, on feedback that IBM is hearing from its enterprise clients.
