Independent Research Firm Recognizes Altiscale as a Strong Performer in Big Data Hadoop Cloud Solutions report

For many years, Hadoop has been mostly deployed on-premises. Starting this past year, however, a majority of enterprises now report that they are looking to the cloud as the best place to experience Big Data, due to its superior cost model and scalability, and as their concerns about cloud security are being rapidly overcome. Now, Forrester Research has come out with “The Forrester Wave™: Big Data Hadoop Cloud Solutions, Q2 2016,”and we are delighted to report that Altiscale is recognized as a Strong Performer among the eight Hadoop as a Service  providers evaluated.

Hitting a Big Data Wall? How to Improve Hadoop ROI

With the adoption of any new technology, businesses are tasked with measuring success and demonstrating value to the organization — Big Data is not any different. As interest in Big Data grows, the value of the technology platform that delivers it must be accurately calculated and demonstrated to the rest of the organization. Hadoop is increasingly the platform of choice for Big Data, and there is a common misconception that predicting and deriving ROI from Hadoop deployments is too challenging. According to a recent Gartner research report, 24 percent of organizations are not measuring the ROI of Big Data at all.

Enough swearing, already! It is time to clean up the language in Big Data.

This week, you may have noticed something new about Altiscale. We’ve got a new website. We’ve got a new logo, and we’ve got a new look. But what hasn’t changed is our dedication to making our customers successful with Big Data. Altiscale was founded on the notion that Big Data should be easy. Today, Big Data is not easy for most companies. The choice has been to deploy on premises or on basic cloud infrastructure, in environments not suited to the challenges of Big Data. In either case, it costs a ton of money and requires an army of operations people. And even then, managing it is a huge pain.
