"Big Data is a fairly overhyped term. At the end of the day, analytics are about all forms of data." - Rajeev Nayar

Rajeev Nayar, Associate VP & Head, Big Data Practice - Cloud, Infosys was featured in an exclusive interview with Analytics India Magazine(AIM). Rajeev spoke about the Big Data practice at Infosys, how we are seeing the market changing and how Infosys plans to sustain itself in the Big Data market.

 Some of the points Rajeev makes are:

·         Big Data is a fairly overhyped term. At the end of the day, analytics are about all forms of data. Big data just deals with data sets of extremely high volumes that cannot be handled by traditional tools

·         We strongly believe that there will ultimately be an amalgamation of Big Data with traditional BI/BA practices. What we are looking to achieve is to provide a common layer which brings together all data formats and help generate insights

·         Almost all organizations today are focused on using big data technologies rather than addressing the problems this technology is trying to solve. At the end of the day, it is important to understand that these are just tools

·         The largest concern for us lies in the acute shortage of skills in this space. Enterprise solutions are still not mature enough to be intuitive. Obtaining and retaining resources for big data projects is a big challenge

·         We see a lot of focus on how enterprises are going to analyze these vast dispersed sources of information without physically bringing them together
