The Gartner report further stated:

“By 2018, 80% of structured data archiving vendors will provide integrated support for unstructured content archiving — up from 30% today.”

Full text search is another capability in many offerings. Increasingly, support for big data analytics, such as Hive, Spark and Pig, are being added to enterprise buying requirements.”
