Rick Whiting recently wrote for CRN.com, “Startups developing technology for collecting, analyzing and managing big data make up a disproportionate number of the companies on this year’s CRN list of emerging vendors. That’s not so surprising when you consider that big data is one of the hottest segments of the IT industry right now. Just take a look at recent venture funding announcements from such companies as Interana ($20 million in January), Looker ($30 million in March), Snowflake Computing ($45 million in June) and Domo (an astounding $200 million in April). Here’s a selection of 10 big data/business analytics startups from this year’s CRN Emerging Vendors roundup. They may be developing groundbreaking technology, upsetting the business intelligence status quo or making a splash in the channel.”

First on the list is Arcadia Data: “An increasing number of businesses are implementing Hadoop systems, using them to collect huge volumes of disparate data from multiple sources. But making use of that data isn’t so easy — most traditional business analytics tools can’t directly access Hadoop data and IT departments have to step in to prepare the data or move it to another system to make it available for everyday business workers. Arcadia Data is developing visual analytics software that overcomes those hurdles by directly accessing data stored in Hadoop clusters. The technology uses Hadoop as an operating system, allowing it to run directly on Hadoop servers and access data stored in the Hadoop Distributed File System. Arcadia launched Arcadia Instant, a free download of the data visualization tool, in June with plans to finish and ship the complete platform by the end of this year.”
