Big data analytics is defined as the process of examining large data sets to determine hidden pattern, correlations, market trends, and customer preferences. With around 50 billion devices to be connected to the internet by 2020, data analytics is going to enable designers to improve their services by gaining customer feedback and eliminating design flaws. Major companies are investing in big data analytics to understand their customer better to provide them with experience design.
