IT trends in India: Investing in big data technology
Businesses in India remain about a year behind those based in Europe and North America when it comes to big data technology adoption. In order to compete with the large overseas retailers investing directly in the Indian market, smaller domestic enterprises will need to increase spending on big data technology and invest in skilled data scientists. In this e-guide, find out what’s driving these changes, how to remain competitive and where to find the right data scientists.
Foreign retailers could drive Indian big data investments
"If large overseas retailers come into India with all their fancy analytics tools, domestic retailers that want to be competitive will have to invest in these technologies."– Sid Deshpande, Gartner analyst from India.
How to find the right data scientists
