In our 2017 study, telecommunications and financial services are the leading industry adopters, with 87 percent and 76 percent respectively reporting current usage. Current adoption of big data is notably strongest within very large organizations. Data warehouse optimization remains the top use case for big data, followed by customer/social analysis and predictive maintenance.
