Big Data – Part 2: The Technologies on the Landscape

November 25, 2012

Continuing from Big Data – Part 1: Big What? where I explored what the concept of Big Data is and the possibilities it presents, I now want to to consider the constituent parts which together make up Big Data. I also want to look at some of the key vendors and products on the market which are enabling Big Data analytics.

I thought that rather than writing a long, rambling post it might be nice to put this together into a mind map (I used the free desktop version of iMindMap). For anyone interested, a quick Google search will provide you with plenty of resources.


Big Data Landscape Mind Map

This map will no doubt go out of date very quickly – and it’s only intended to give a flavor of what’s out there. If you think I’ve missed any important ones, let me know! I’d also love to hear from anyone using these technologies – or others – about your experiences with them.

Useful Resources

Some resources which I found useful were when creating this mind map are:


  • I included WebGL and OpenGL in the ADV section for those who want to roll their own graphics
  • I included R programming language in Query & Data Analytics because it is so useful for “Data Scientists”

    Hello! thanks for sharing your mindmap! i was looking for a proper vendor list for big data and yours seemed the best.

    In addition, I was wondering if it would be possible for me to know sources of your mindmap.

    thank you!

    Hey Isabelle, thanks for posting – and sorry for the delayed response. I’ll need to look out the references as they were on a laptop which I don’t have access to any more (treated myself to a new one a Christmas), but I expect I’ll have them stored on HD somewhere as well. That said, the big data landscape is changing rapidly, so even in this short time the diagram will already be quite out of date.

    If I find the references I’ll email them to you.

    Hey Isabelle, just re-read my post above and noticed that I’d put some of the main references in the “Useful References” section above. Hope that helps. G
