Pentaho has announced that the company more than tripled its Big Data sales in the second quarter of 2012 over the first. In conjunction with this news, the company has also announced five trends driving Big Data analytics growth. The article states, “After completing a detailed analysis of Q2 big data sales, it emerged that more than 70% of new Pentaho customers in the quarter are deploying on Hadoop, with the remaining new customers split evenly between NoSQL databases (MongoDB and Cassandra) and analytic databases (primarily Greenplum and Vertica).”

The first contributing trend is that the developer community is driving adoption: “Big data is entering organizations because of key business drivers, while technical developer resources are the people designing, developing and deploying these applications. In recognition of these developers, Pentaho┬ácontributed key big data technologies┬áto open source under the Apache License. The purpose was to help foster adoption of big data analytics, speed up innovation and development of these technologies, and work more closely with communities from existing open source big data technologies like Hadoop and NoSQL databases.”
