WARREN, NJ – July 15, 2015 – Knowledgent, the data and analytics firm, today announced the release of the 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 Mark Hayward, Big Data Partner, Knowledgent. “Bringing the Big Data Ecosystem into an online environment was the next logical step to providing data and analytics professionals with the information they need to accelerate their big data vendor searches.”
