- Global data analytics market potentially worth USD48.6 billion in 2019
MALAYSIAN technology company Sedania Innovator Bhd said it has entered into a partnership with global data analytics giant Cloudera to be the latter’s first and only gold partner in South-East Asia.
Under the five-year partnership agreement, Sedania Innovator would have rights to provide Cloudera data analytics services to corporations in Malaysia, as well as access to the rest of the region, the company said in a statement.
“This partnership with Cloudera aptly positions Sedania Innovator in the forefront of empowering corporations with revolutionary tools for effective data analytics,” said Sedania Innovator managing director Azrin Mohd Noor.
“We certainly recognise the immense potential in this space, and are already actively engaging with prospective customers across the telecommunications, utilities and banking sectors to provide data analytics services,” he added.
Research firm IDC expects the global data analytics market to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 23.1% per year from 2014 to 2019, with the market value increasing from US$17.2 billion to US$48.6 billion, Sedania Innovator said.
“South-East Asia, Malaysia included, presents very exciting prospects for Cloudera,” said Cloudera’s regional director for Asean & India, Joseph Lee.
“We believe that the data analytics market in this region is poised for a boom, given the rate of the population’s embrace of digital frontiers in commerce and various lifestyle-disruption technologies.
“This venture would enable both Sedania Innovator and Cloudera to capture sizable market share in the big data analytics market, in light of Cloudera’s comprehensive service offerings and IDC’s prediction of almost US$80 million spending in Malaysia for big data analytics by the year of 2018,” he added.
