Predictive Analytics has been billed as the next big thing for almost fifteen years, but hasn’t gained mass acceptance so far the way ERP and CRM solutions have. One of the main reason for this is the high upfront investment required in Software, Hardware and Talent for implementing a Predictive Analytics solution.
Well, this is about to change – […] Using R, HBase and Hadoop, it is possible to build cost-effective and scalable Big Data Analytics solutions that match or even exceed the functionality offered by costly proprietary solutions from leading BI/Analytics software vendors at a fraction of the cost.
Vendors will argue that software licensing represents just a small fraction of the costs of implementing BI or data analytics. What they’ll leave out is the costs of acquiring know-how and more important, the costs of maintenance and modernization of their solutions.
