Jaspersoft Announces Big Data Index to Track Demand for Big Data Analytics

Leading open source BI company is able to gauge demand for popular Big Data sources including Hadoop Hive, HBase, MongoDB, Cassandra and more

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- STRATA CONFERENCE, Jaspersoft, maker of the world's most widely used business intelligence (BI) software, today released the first BI industry Big Data Index, a ranking of connector downloads for leading databases and data sources including Hadoop Hive, Hadoop HBase, MongoDB, Cassandra, and other popular frameworks used to manage Big Data sets. By capturing download data from January 2011 to January 2012, Jaspersoft can verify growth trends for Big Data analytics overall and rank demand for individual data sources.

Key findings so far in the 2012 Big Data Index indicate:

  • Over 15,000 Big Data connectors were downloaded in 2011;
  • Demand for MongoDB, the document-oriented NoSQL database, saw the biggest spike with over 200 percent growth in 2011;
  • Hadoop Hive, the SQL interface to Hadoop MapReduce, represented 60 percent of all Hadoop-based connectors;
  • Hadoop HBase, the distributed Hadoop environment, was the second most popular Hadoop-based connector;
  • Cassandra, the high availability NoSQL database, was among the top four most downloaded Big Data sources in 2011; and
  • Over 27 percent of Big Data connector downloads were for Riak, Infinispan, Neo4J, Redis, CouchDB, VoltDB or others.

Demand for faster, more seamless methods to connect, analyze, and present insights from Big Data grew significantly in the past year, according to Jaspersoft's Big Data Index. The data is based on the total number of native connector downloads from JasperForge, Jaspersoft's open source, community-focused web site. The Big Data Index tracks the broadest set of NoSQL and Big Data environments including Hadoop Hive, Hadoop HBase, MongoDB, Cassandra, Riak, Infinispan, Neo4J, Redis, CouchDB, VoltDB, and more.

"Extracting insights quickly from Big Data sources like Hadoop or MongoDB yields tremendous competitive advantage for companies," said Karl Van den Bergh, VP of Products and Alliances at Jaspersoft. "By tracking the Big Data Index, we see three popular approaches to access Big Data environments in business intelligence. These include reporting and analysis through direct connectivity, direct batch style reporting, and extracting data through batch ETL to a central warehouse or database. Companies want options for Big Data analytics because every use case is different. Some want direct and immediate answers from their Big Data sources throughout the day, while others want a more traditional approach with periodic reports. The Big Data Index provides quantitative visibility into these trends."

Today's growth in data volume, variety, and velocity has led to an explosion in new data frameworks that capture and process Big Data. For more information and to continue following the Big Data Index, visit http://www.jaspersoft.com/big-data-index.

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production. In his general session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, Solutions Marketi...
It has never been a better time to be a developer! Thanks to cloud computing, deploying our applications is much easier than it used to be. How we deploy our apps continues to evolve thanks to cloud hosting, Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), and now Function-as-a-Service. FaaS is the concept of serverless computing via serverless architectures. Software developers can leverage this to deploy an individual "function", action, or piece of business logic. They are expected to start within milliseconds...
We all know that end users experience the internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices - not doing so will be a path to eventual ...

The first step to solving a problem is recognizing that it actually exists. And whether you've realized it or not, cloud services are a problem for your IT department. Even if you feel like you have a solid grasp of cloud technology and the nuances of making a cloud purchase, business leaders don't share the same confidence. Nearly 80% feel that IT lacks the skills necessary to help with cloud purchases-and they're looking to cloud brokers for help instead. It's time to admit we have a cloud s...
According to a recent Gartner study, by 2020, it will be unlikelythat any enterprise will have a “no cloud” policy, and hybrid will be the most common use of the cloud. While the benefits of leveraging public cloud infrastructures are well understood, the desire to keep critical workloads and data on-premise in the private data center still remains. For enterprises, the hybrid cloud provides a best of both worlds solution. However, the leading factor that determines the preference to the hybrid ...
In this modern world of IT, you've probably got some new colleagues in your life-namely, the cloud and SaaS providers who now hold your infrastructure in their hands. These business relationships-yes, they're technology-based, but cloud and SaaS are business models-will become as important to your IT team and your company as the hardware and software you used to install. Once you've adopted SaaS, or inherited SaaS, it's on you to avoid price hikes, licensing issues and app or provider sprawl....
A completely new computing platform is on the horizon. They’re called Microservers by some, ARM Servers by others, and sometimes even ARM-based Servers. No matter what you call them, Microservers will have a huge impact on the data center and on server computing in general. Although few people are familiar with Microservers today, their impact will be felt very soon. This is a new category of computing platform that is available today and is predicted to have triple-digit growth rates for some ...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
