“A growing number of Turkish enterprises are finding value in data-driven decision making as they look for differentiated insights from the large variety and volume of internal and external data available to them,” says Eren Eser, principal analyst at IDC Turkey. “While the primary short-term objective of utilizing big data and analytics is to improve business operations, many Turkish organizations are also looking to use BDA to develop new business and revenue streams in the longer term.”
The top three industries in terms of BDA investment in 2018 will be banking, telecommunications, and central government. Combined, these three industries will invest around $132 million in BDA solutions this year, accounting for more than 45% of total BDA spending in Turkey. IDC expects these industries to remain the largest spenders in 2022 when their combined investments will total $215 million. However, construction, insurance and local government will see the fastest growth over the coming years, with IDC forecasting respective CAGRs of 15.6%, 15.5%, and 15.0% for the 2017–2022 period.
In terms of software, relational data warehouse management tools will be the biggest BDA segment in Turkey this year, with spending forecast to reach $29 million, accounting for 9.9% share of the market. IDC expects spending on this group of software tools to pass the $38 million mark by 2022.
