WARREN, NJ: Data analytics firm Knowledgent announces the release of the web-based Big Data Ecosystem for easy to understanding and overview of the Big Data vendor landscape. The platform helps data and analytics professionals to make sense of the diverse tools and similar other available offerings. Users can also search the Big Data Ecosystem for comparing vendors from similar categories and then come to an informed choice.

Amidst the growing focus on managing large datasets, big data tools and platforms are demonstrating that they are more advanced compared to the traditional methods of analyzing and managing high-volume data. However in a market where new vendors struggle to be heard and existing vendors try to reposition their products, Knowledgent is constantly analyzing and categorizing vendors and their products into 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,” he continues.

The Big Data Ecosystem provides an easy and organized view of both established and new technologies. The 2015 version has been updated based on recent changes in big data landscape. The Big Data Ecosystem gives a better outlook on Hadoop tools to deliver clearer and more precise categorization, depicts most recent relationships between products and technologies, including recent acquisitions and includes Data Security.
