Advances in big data tools and services means that 2015 will be the year that IT can ease away from being a bottleneck to the access of data by business users and data scientists, Schroeder says.

"In 2015, IT will embrace self-service big data to allow business users self-service to big data," he says. "Self-service empowers developers, data scientists and data analysts to conduct data exploration directly."

Previously, IT would be required to establish centralized data structures," he adds. "This is a time-consuming and expensive step. Hadoop has made the enterprise comfortable with structure-on-read for some use cases. Advanced organizations will move to data bindings on execution and away from a central structure to fulfill ongoing requirements. This self-service speeds organizations in their ability to leverage new data sources and respond to opportunities and threats."
