Sunnyvale, CA, United States, 2014/05/26 - Altoros, a big data and Platform-as-a-Service specialist, has been recognized as a market leader in Hadoop and big data consulting, according to a 2014 study by SourcingLine, a research company based in Washington, DC.
Independent research using qualified customer interviews
The analysis based on verified customer interviews gave Altoros a high ranking on two lists: Top Big Data & BI Consulting Companies and Top Hadoop Consulting Companies.
“All of the selected companies focus primarily on big data analytics or Hadoop and have proven they can provide tangible value to data driven enterprises,” says Tim Clarke, Senior Business Analyst at SourcingLine. “However, it is often challenging for prospective buyers to devise a short-list of leading firms. Our research aims to expedite the procurement process and help connect buyers with qualified service providers.”
Altoros was selected out of dozens of big data and Hadoop consulting companies evaluated by SourcingLine. One of the main factors behind this level of expertise and customer satisfaction is research made by the company over the last couple of years. It includes a vendor-independent benchmark of NoSQL databases, a cloud platform comparison, an evaluation of private PaaS systems, etc. Another paper on big data recently published by Altoros is a Hadoop cluster benchmark, a detailed performance comparison of major Hadoop distributions.
