Over the next few years, the "realtime commerce" space is set to experience
phenomenal growth. Companies such as One Kings Lane, Groupon, LivingSocial,
Ideeli and others are developing a whole set of new retail business models.
Others such as Amazon and Netflix are developing ever more powerful
recommendation engines, and a huge number of companies are looking to develop
more accurate models for personalization and targeted advertising. A new
"realtime commerce" revolution is underway that will be as profound a shift
for the business world as the eCommerce revolution of the 1990s.
To be successful in realtime commerce, companies will have to put in place a
whole raft of new capabilities, many or most of which will require, and be
powered by, new realtime big data analytics platforms. The winners in
data-driven realtime commerce will be those that can best handle som... (more)
In big data computing, and more generally in all commercial highly parallel
software systems, speed matters more than just about anything else. The

With Dropbox, Jive, Yammer, Chatter and a number of other new services, the
modern enterprise is rapidly becoming "consumerized". And it's not just
business, the same is happening in major web companies, on Wall Street, in

software" experiences is making this transition happen much more quickly than
anyone would have expected. The shift to cloud computing is also accelerating
the trend, as is the goal of developing a much more "social" approach to

First it was just about documents, then about collaboration, now it's all
about data. Office software is changing, and changing fast. It's moving to
the cloud, and moving to the age of big data.
Data is growing exponentially everywhere. With this relentless data deluge,
every enterprise from global Fortune 50 companies down to SMBs, every

to ensure that everyone in the organization has instant access to all the
information they require, at all times.
We're now entering the third generation of office soft... (more)
LONDON, May 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Visiongain's analysis indicates that the total value of the global cloud
computing services market revenues reach $35.6 billion by the end of 2013,
