SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/08/14 --


  • More enterprises rely on Cascading as critical infrastructure to make the most of the business of data
  • Cascading production base increases to more than 6,000 deployments, 30,000 users and 130,000 downloads per month
  • Continued innovation, including the introduction of Cascading 2.5, Cascading Lingual 1.0 and strategic partnerships drives company momentum

Concurrent, Inc., the enterprise Big Data application platform company, finished a stellar 2013 with unprecedented growth and innovative solutions for the enterprise. The company continues to pave the way for enterprise Big Data application development on Apache Hadoop™ with rapid adoption of its Cascading application platform, along with the introduction of open source projects Cascading Lingual 1.0, Cascading Pattern and Cascading 2.5. Additional yearly milestones include $4 million in Series A funding, continued expansion of the company's leadership team and new strategic partnerships, as well as overwhelming successes seen by Cascading users.

Cascading has become the platform of choice for tackling enterprise Big Data processing needs in an effort to connect growing volumes of data stored with business strategy. With rapid and increasing demand for businesses to derive more from data, Cascading provides a practical and reliable platform for enterprises to leverage existing skillsets, software investments and systems to build enterprise-class applications on Hadoop, thereby lowering the barrier to adoption and facilitating execution of their data strategies. With Cascading, enterprises can apply Java, SQL and predictive modeling investments, and combine the respective outputs of multiple departments into a single enterprise data application.
