muSOAing for 9/9/10 – Democratization of Big Data

The publishing of the Map/Reduce spec by Google did really lead to the Democratization of this whole space. What was hitherto the exclusive realm of the Exadatas of the world was suddenly made available to everyone. Many folks may not realize this but this is actually very critical as volumes of data are only expected to increase.

This whole Big Data Ecosystem has seen the emergence of a plethora of vendors with very interesting offerings. While a lot of them are centered around Hadoop which I can say is the current forerunner in terms of adoption and mindshare, there are others who offer some very unique differentiating factors when it comes to handling Big Data and Advanced Analytical capabilities.
