The Forrester Wave™: Big Data Hadoop Solutions, Q1 2014

February 27, 2014


Why Read This Report

Tsssss! That's the sound of Hadoop. It's today's sizzling-hot data management platform because it: 1) offers lower-cost storage than traditional systems, 2) has open source innovation, 3) can scale nicely, as its distributed file system makes it suitable for storing and processing big data, and 4) has opened firms' eyes again to the power and profit potential of data. In Forrester's 32-criteria evaluation of big data Hadoop solutions, we evaluated nine solutions from Amazon Web Services (AWS), Cloudera, Hortonworks, IBM, Intel, MapR Technologies, Microsoft, Pivotal Software, and Teradata. This report details our findings about how well each solution fulfills the criteria, shows where the vendors stand in relation to each other, and helps technology management professionals select the right Hadoop solution for their business needs.
