Next Generation Information Architecture for Big Data and Analytics

February 2016


In 2015, PwC peered into the data and analytics practices of over 1,988 senior executives from across 51 countries with a survey that spanned 10 industries. The results were both encouraging and disheartening: Most respondents reported that data and analytics create value for their organizations, but at the same time they confessed that capturing information and transitioning from information to insight is a major challenge.

Virtually no company is immune from these ubiquitous trends. Businesses need a next-generation information architecture specifically designed to deal with diverse data assets, speed up data processing and analytics, and drive innovation, lower costs, and enable impactful business outcomes for its internal and external partners. In this paper, we explore the components in next-generation information architecture as well as the operating models you can adopt as you develop and execute the architecture.
