Oracle and IBM May Not Know Big Data, but Neither Does Ballmer

The echo chamber is reacting:

Specifically, for a data processing and analytics project to qualify as Big Data, it must encompass not just internal corporate data, but also third-party data that resides outside the firewall, according to Ballmer. He said IBM and Oracle limit their Big Data approaches to internal data, thus they are not in fact Big Data by his definition.

[…]

IBM, Oracle and now Microsoft are jockeying to position each of their approaches to Big Data as the industry standard, and Ballmer is clearly trying to steer the Big Data conversation towards Microsoft’s strengths and away from its weaknesses. That means talking up Microsoft’s ability to integrate third-party data with relatively large volumes of corporate data inside Microsoft’s SQL Server R2 Parallel Data Warehouse and away from its lack of petabyte-scale data processing power.

I guess there will be no end to the Oracle-IBM-Microsoft triangle love, so I’ll stop here until real facts are added to the story.
