Recently, Big Data Republic carried out a survey of over 200 members, checking in on their organizations' capabilities to leverage big data -- and the results show there is much work left to do.
Taking feedback from verticals as disparate as manufacturing, government, and financial markets, we saw that big data success looks different to each, and that size and constitution of the organization has a huge impact on where stumbling blocks are identified, as shown the infographic below:
Re: Look at the last graph. That's true @legalcio, but at the same time they lack the level of budget constraints felt in the bigger organisations. Probably down to being more agile at that size... this might be something the SaaS guys want to take into consideration.

Look at the last graph. Small businesses don't have the budget, but legacy systems can't give them what they need, but they also lack in-house talent. There is the gold mine for Big Data. Figure out how to serve this market segment either through SaaS, third party, etc., and you'll see a proliferation of Big Data solutions there.
