20 Most Promising Hadoop Solution Providers - 2016

Fashioned almost a decade ago—an open-source software framework written in Java, created ripples in the world of big data and ushered in an era of open source collating software framework for organizations across the world. Hadoop, with its promise for provisioning of data lakes, traditional and advanced analytics, transactional data, and more—will become a major part of enterprise initiatives within the next one year.

 With the adoption rate growing at an unprecedented pace, major organizations are launching data analytics, management and governance tools that run natively in Hadoop—working alongside enterprise apps. Businesses and service providers, amidst the adoption have faced with scarcity of Hadoop experts. But with Hadoop bringing in on its promise of filling data lakes, CIOs are now leveraging their internal Hadoop talents along with the consultants. Furthermore, Hadoop reduces the nonfunctionality of on-premises resources with the introduction of the cloud which means enterprises can access a thousand nodes to perform a job and then kick back the compute and network resources to zero when not needed.

In the last few months, we looked at hundreds of solution providers and consulting companies and shortlisted the ones that are at the forefront of tackling the challenges in the Hadoop landscape.

 In our selection we examined the vendor’s capability to fulfill the needs of companies by offering products, solutions, and services that support core business data processes. We also evaluated the vendor capabilities related to deployment of cloud, big data, and analytics, mobility, and Business Intelligence in the specific context of the business.
