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.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
