That's a little ironic, given that the main promise of big data is the ability to make better business decisions based on compute-intensive analysis of massive data sets. The solution is to create a supply chain that identifiess business goals from the start -- and deploy the agile infrastructure necessary to make good on those objectives.</em></p> Big Data Big Data Wed, 16 Apr 2014 10:00:00 +0000 New Tech Forum 240596 at http://www.infoworld.com 10 big data startups to watch http://www.infoworld.com/d/big-data/10-big-data-startups-watch-240414?source=rss_big_data <p>The Big Data space is heating up to the point that many pundits already see it as the over-hyped heir to "cloud." The hype may be a bit much, but Big Data is already living up to its potential, transforming entire business lines, such as marketing, pharmaceutical research, and cyber-security.</p> <p>While the space is still fairly new, IDC, for one, sees big things ahead. The research firm predicts that the market for Big Data technologies will reach $32.4 billion by 2017, or about six times the growth rate of the overall information and communication technology market.</p> Big Data Business Intelligence Big Data Data Mining Startups Mon, 14 Apr 2014 14:46:47 +0000 admin 240414 at http://www.infoworld.com LucidWorks, Hortonworks team up to be Hadoop's search engine http://www.infoworld.com/t/hadoop/lucidworks-hortonworks-team-be-hadoops-search-engine-239732?source=rss_big_data <div id="blog-edit" style="padding: 8px; background: none no-repeat scroll center top #ffffff; position: relative; float: right; width: 243px; height: 192px;"><img src="http://www.infoworld.com/sites/infoworld.com/files/media/image/hadoop.jpg" alt="LucidWorks, Hortonworks team up to be Hadoop's search engine" width="243" height="182" align="right" /><br /><em><p align="right">Credit: Wikimedia</p> Big Data Cloud Computing Data Explosion Data Management Big Data Hadoop Thu, 03 Apr 2014 10:00:00 +0000 InfoWorld Tech Watch 239732 at http://www.infoworld.com Big data showdown: Cassandra vs. HBase http://www.infoworld.com/d/big-data/big-data-showdown-cassandra-vs-hbase-239592?source=rss_big_data <div id="blog-edit" style="padding: 8px; background: none no-repeat scroll center top #ffffff; position: relative; float: right; width: 243px; height: 182px;"><img src="http://www.infoworld.com/sites/infoworld.com/files/media/image/BigData440x330.jpg" alt="Big data showdown: Cassandra vs.</div> Big Data Data Management Open Source Software NoSQL Cloud Computing Data Management Wed, 02 Apr 2014 10:00:00 +0000 Doug Dineley 239592 at http://www.infoworld.com Hortonworks and Pivotal vie for Hadoop dominance http://www.infoworld.com/t/hadoop/hortonworks-and-pivotal-vie-hadoop-dominance-239607?source=rss_big_data <div id="blog-edit" style="padding: 8px; background: none no-repeat scroll center top #ffffff; position: relative; float: right; width: 243px; height: 192px;"><img src="http://www.infoworld.com/sites/infoworld.com/files/media/image/hadoop.jpg" alt="Hortonworks and Pivotal vie for Hadoop dominance" width="243" height="182" align="right" /><br /><em><p align="right">Credit: Wikimedia</p> Big Data Data Explosion Data Management Big Data Hadoop Open Source Software Wed, 02 Apr 2014 10:00:00 +0000 InfoWorld Tech Watch 239607 at http://www.infoworld.com Review: HBase is massively scalable -- and hugely complex http://www.infoworld.com/d/big-data/review-hbase-massively-scalable-and-hugely-complex-239269?source=rss_big_data <div id="blog-edit" style="padding: 8px; background: none no-repeat scroll center top #ffffff; position: relative; float: right; width: 243px; height: 192px;"><img src="http://www.infoworld.com/sites/infoworld.com/files/media/image/hadoop.jpg" alt="Review: HBase is massively scalable -- and hugely complex" width="243" height="182" align="right" /><br /><em><p align="right">Credit: Wikimedia</p></em></div> Big Data Data Management NoSQL Cloud Computing Data Management Mon, 31 Mar 2014 10:00:00 +0000 Doug Dineley 239269 at http://www.infoworld.com Facebook, Twitter, Google, and LinkedIn pump up scaling for MySQL http://www.infoworld.com/t/mysql/facebook-twitter-google-and-linkedin-pump-scaling-mysql-239273?source=rss_big_data <div id="tw-edit" style="padding: 8px; background: none no-repeat scroll center top #ffffff; position: relative; float: right; width: 243px; height: 182px;"><img src="http://www.infoworld.com/sites/infoworld.com/files/media/image/51FErevdata_il.jpg" alt="Facebook, Twitter, Google, and LinkedIn pump up scaling for MySQL" width="243" height="182" align="right" /></div> <p>Look no further for a sign of MySQL's success than its breadth of use in companies both big and small.
