Shopping in the Big Data marketplace | Big Data Technology, Semantics and Analytics |

"The Big Data marketplace is diverse and growing. It has a host of companies selling products that are called big data solutions but some of that is opportunism and some is deliberate obfuscation of the concept."


After reading this article, I couldn't help but add some more depth. "Shopping in the Big Data Marketplace" fails to mention the leader in this space, MarkLogic who has been providing powerful, accessible and trusted technology in this space longer than any of the vendors mentioned in the article. This isn't hype.
