Buyers guide


Last Updated: June 18, 2019

It's safe to say that “big data" is no longer just a buzzword. Today it's a $200 billion industry addressing one of the most significant challenges facing organizations: analyzing vast amounts of disparate data to find patterns or trends that can potentially improve their business.

With the advent of social media and the internet, businesses from small startups to large enterprises are contending with more data than they know what to do with. Approximately 2.5 quintillion bytes of new data are created every single day, meaning the need for big data tools to do the heavy lifting on this analysis will only continue to grow. According to Gartner, almost half of all businesses are investing in big data now, and a quarter plan to invest in big data soon. (Full content available to Gartner clients.)

That's where we come in. In this Buyer's Guide, we'll explain everything you need to know about the big data landscape so you can choose the right tool that will best suit your needs and budget.

Here's what we'll cover:
