Newly Released 2016 Live Big Data Ecosystem Adds Over 150 New Technologies

WARREN, NJ – March 30, 2016 – Knowledgent, the data and analytics firm, today announced the release of the 2016 online Big Data Ecosystem. This web-based version of Knowledgent’s industry-leading reference architecture provides an overview of today’s big data vendor landscape to help data and analytics professionals make sense of the many tools and other big data offerings available.

With the increasing focus on managing large datasets, big data tools and platforms are proving that they are superior to many traditional methods of analyzing and managing high-volume data. However, as with many disruptive trends, market confusion arises as new vendors strive to be heard and existing vendors attempt to reposition their products. To cut through the confusion, Knowledgent continuously analyzes and categorizes vendors and their products into a comprehensive reference architecture: the Big Data Ecosystem.

“We’ve seen a significant jump in interest in the Big Data Ecosystem over the past couple of years, as more organizations look to move their big data initiatives from Proof-of-Concept to production,” said Peter Gibson, Executive Partner, Knowledgent. “The Big Data Ecosystem has exploded this year, with over 150 new technologies included for 2016.”

The Big Data Ecosystem provides an easy-to-understand, curated view of both established and new technologies. The 2016 version has been updated based on recent changes in the big data landscape with new products, new releases, and mergers/acquisitions. It allows for a deeper view into the technologies and the ability to search and compare them.
