- THE WORLD’S TOP 10 MOST INNOVATIVE COMPANIES IN BIG DATA http://www.fastcompany.com/most-innovative-companies/2014/industry/big-data
Storm and Kafka
Drill and Dremel
Drill and Dremel make large-scale, ad-hoc querying of data possible, with radically lower latencies that are especially apt for data exploration. They make it possible to scan over petabytes of data in seconds, to answer ad hoc queries and presumably, power compelling visualizations.
R is an open source statistical programming language. It is incredibly powerful. Over two million (and counting) analysts use R. It’s been around since 1997 if you can believe it. It is a modern version of the S language for statistical computing that originally came out of the Bell Labs. Today, R is quickly becoming the new standard for statistics.
Gremlin and Giraph
Gremlin and Giraph help empower graph analysis, and are often used coupled with graph databases like Neo4j or InfiniteGraph, or in the case of Giraph, working with Hadoop. Golden Orb is another high-profile example of a graph-based project picking up steam.
SAP Hana is an in-memory analytics platform that includes an in-memory database and a suite of tools and software for creating analytical processes and moving data in and out, in the right formats.
Honorable mention: D3
D3 doesn’t make the list quite yet, but it’s close, and worth mentioning for that reason.
- HPE Vertica Analytics Platform – an analytical platform to quickly consume and analyze large dataset.Vertical
