Big data projects take 18 to 24 months to deliver clear benefits


"UK organisations expect big data initiatives to take an average of 18 to 24 months before seeing a significant return on investment, according to research by V3's sister site Computing.

An in-depth survey of hundreds of organisations asked in what period of time they expect to see a sufficient return on investment to qualify a big data initiative as a success.

Some 38% of respondents said that they would expect it to take two years, while 27% said one year and 24% said three years. Just 5% of respondents said five years, while 4% said more than five years.

In addition to the quantitative study, the survey interviewed executives and other IT decision makers by phone, and in face-to-face interviews and focus groups, giving the chance for many of the respondents to explain the reason for their answers.”
