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.

With online viewership and sales growing rapidly, enterprises are interested in understanding how they analyze performance to positively impact business metrics. Deeper insight into the user experience is needed to understand why conversions are dropping and/or bounce rates are increasing or, preferably, to understand what has been helping these metrics improve. The digital performance management industry has evolved as application performance management companies have broadened their scope beyo...
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy. Meanwhile, 94% of enterprises are using some form of XaaS - software, platform, and infrastructure as a service.
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
Whether they’re located in a public, private, or hybrid cloud environment, cloud technologies are constantly evolving.

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...

Apache Hadoop is a key technology for gaining business insights from your Big Data, but the penetration into enterprises is shockingly low. In fact, Apache Hadoop and Big Data proponents recognize that this technology has not yet achieved its game-changing business potential. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, John Mertic, director of program management for ODPi at The Linux Foundation, will explain why this is, how we can work together as an open data community to increase adoption, and the i...
About a year ago we tuned into “the need for speed” and how a concept like "serverless computing” was increasingly catering to this. We are now a year further and the term “serverless” is taking on unexpected proportions. With some even seeing it as the successor to cloud in general or at least as a successor to the clouds’ poorer cousin in terms of revenue, hype and adoption: PaaS. The question we need to ask is whether this constitutes an example of Hype Hopping: to effortlessly pivot to the ...
