Is your Big Data ‘mature’? You may be puzzled by this question, since many in the industry have been saying ‘Big Data is Dead’ for years. But Big Data is far from dead, and instead technologies and solutions that make up the Big Data space are maturing at an ever increasing rate. From traditional players like Teradata, to open-source Hadoop, to new Cloud players like Google Big Query, the Big Data space is doing more to help companies manage and gain insights from their exploding and morphing data than at any other point in history. So what?
There is no shortage of advice if you’re in the market for a “BI on Big Data” solution or as we sometimes like to call it “Big BI”. Big BI refers to a Business Intelligence (BI) platform that conforms with end-users needs (typically seamlessly integrated with Tableau or Excel), that can scale on any data size to deliver top query performance.
A resource you might find particularly interesting when sizing up your BI tools, is the latest version of the “G2 Crowd Grid for Business Intelligence Software”. The Winter 2016 version just got published. We reviewed the grid and its report and found some interesting insights worth sharing.
