Big data as a service (BDaaS) is a combination of big data analytics technologies and cloud computing platforms that benefits users to reduce the cost and time for the deployment of big data projects. Also, it allows enterprises to manage big data on the cloud and provides easy data access to all departments at any given time. Enterprises incur substantial costs while building big data infrastructure and recruiting skilled human resources. However, with the adoption of cloud-enabled big data technology, this cost has substantially reduced. BDaaS is considered as the delivery of statistical analysis information from a third party or a service provider, which helps the organization to gain insights with an objective to achieve competitive advantage over their competitors.
Growing demand for statistical analysis due to the generation of massive amount of unstructured data from the various organizations majorly drives the growth of the big data as a service market. In addition, factors such as expansion of big data analytics which covers data from intelligent systems such as in-vehicle infotainment, smart meters, sensors, and others, current growth of cloud computing, and growing demand for data science and predictive analysis further boosts the growth of the market. However, inadequacy of tools used for the service along with the security and privacy concerns which arise from the implementation of big data as a service are expected to hamper the growth of the market. Furthermore, growing investment in IT sectors by number of businesses and rising demand for advanced analytics and data warehousing solutions are expected to provide major opportunities for the growth of the big data as a service market in the next few years.
