IBM: All content tagged as IBM in NoSQL databases and polyglot persistence
In the blue corner we have IBM with Netezza as analytic database, Cognos for BI, and SPSS for predictive analytics. In the green corner we have EMC with Greenplum and the partnership with SAS. And in the open source corner we have Hadoop and R.
Update: there’s also another corner I don’t know how to color where Teradata and its recently acquired Aster Data partner with SAS.
Who is ready to bet on which of these platforms will be processing more data in the next years?
Netezza, the data warehousing appliance maker, has been acquired by IBM for approximately $1.7 billion. While I haven’t covered Netezza before, this acquisition is interesting from the perspective of the BigData market.
Update: Daniel Abadi wrote ☞ here about a possible Netezza acquisition by IBM over an year ago.
