Abstract:


We present results from questionnaire data that were collected from leading data analytics researchers and experts across Austria. The online survey addresses very pressing questions in the area of (big) data analysis. Our findings provide valuable insights about what top Austrian data scientists think about data analytics, what they consider as important application areas that can benefit from big data and data processing, the challenges of the future and how soon these challenges will become relevant, and become potential research topics of tomorrow. We visualize results, summarize our findings and suggest a roadmap for future decision making.
