Founder and CEO of BigInsights Raj Dalal shared the inaugural part of the research conducted as part of the Study, with the DataCon 2013 audience, as part of a talk titled: Big Data Vendor Landscape: The Battle for MindShare and Marketshare.
As the Big Data market evolves and the solutions emerge, a vast array of Big Data technology and services vendors are positioning themselves for leadership. A large number of venture backed startups are battling against established BI and enterprise software providers. Who is likely to win?
As part of the inaugural Big Data Vendor Landscape Study, Raj also profiled Big Data platform company Cloudera, and the recent, detailed talk his team had with its co-founder Mike Olson, where the latter spoke at length on not only Cloudera’s future plans but also on the potential of Big Data itself.
