Syncsort, a global leader in Big Data integration solutions, today announced its inclusion in Wikibon’s Big Data Vendor Revenue and Market Forecast 2013-2017 report. The report, which analyses results from more than 70 Big Data vendors, defines key market trends in 2013 and forecasts further growth in 2014.
“Wikibon has been tracking and forecasting the Big Data market since 2011, and this past year stands out as the time when Big Data vendors started delivering enterprise-ready solutions,” said Jeff Kelly, Principal Research Contributor, the Wikibon Project. “Syncsort’s expertise in easily offloading legacy data warehouse and mainframe data into Hadoop places the company in a unique position as more organisations evolve their Hadoop environments from testing to production and scaling.”
Wikibon’s research found that in 2013 the overall Big Data industry grew by 58 percent, with estimated $18.6 billion (£1.12 billion) revenue from hardware, software and services sales.
“Thanks to the rapid mainstream adoption of Big Data technologies such as Apache Hadoop, Syncsort is in a great position to accelerate the growth we experienced over the last year,” said Lonne Jaffe, CEO Syncsort. “In 2014, we’re seeing sizable budgets get allocated to Hadoop projects and Syncsort is working with key partners and customers to achieve successful production deployments that fulfill Big Data’s true potential for cost savings and innovation.”
Syncsort was also included in a Forbes article referencing the Wikibon report, “Top 10 Big Data Pure-Plays 2014.”
