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?
The last couple of posts were about BigData and Jeffrey Horner’s presentation is inline with this topic:
If there is ever a time to learn R and web application development, it is now…in the age of Big Data. The upcoming release of R 2.13 will provide basic functionality for developing R web applications on the desktop via the internal HTTP server, but the interface is incompatible with rApache. Jeffrey will talk about Rack, a web server interface and package for R, and how you can start creating your own Big Data stories from the comfort of your own desktop.
Note: The video is missing the beginning and it is not a generic talk about R, so it will be interesting mostly to those using R and planning to develop web applications directly from R.
