IBM Big Data” Scores Top Marks in the just released Q1 2012 Forrester Wave Enterprise Hadoop Solutions report

Check out the latest IBM Big Data blog:

According to the just released Q1 2012 Forrester Wave™ Enterprise Hadoop Solutions report: “IBM has the deepest Hadoop platform and application portfolio.”

Speaks to the completeness and strength of the IBM portfolio to be able to address all types of big data problems.

From what I can see, some of IBM’s largest clients are not turning to IBM for their ‘Big Data’ solutions.

Like I said, it just goes to show you want money can buy. Oh, I’m sorry, you thought I was talking about the high price of IBM’s consulting and software? My bad. 😉
(I kid, I kid. 😉



it has also been pointed out that Amazon scored a 5/5 for professional services, which is quite a feat given they don’t actually have any.
