News In Brief
Not long ago, the rules for what constituted a data warehouse were fairly well defined. The schema was fixed, you could say, and was based primarily on relational database technology designed to process structured data. My, how times have changed. Last week, Gartner for the first time accepted non-relational technologies–including those based on Hadoop and NoSQL–in its annual Magic Quadrant for Data Warehouses report.
According to the big data number crunchers at Wikibon, spending on big data hardware, software, and services added up to $18.6 billion in 2013. That’s about $500 million, or roughly 3 percent, bigger than it projected the market to be a year ago when it did its last forecast. On a year-over-year basis, actual big data spending grew 58 percent.
