Big Data is not only a hot topic among Fortune 500 companies—it is fast becoming a key part of the IT stack. According to a survey of large financial services and healthcare companies just completed by NewVantage Partners, over 90% of these companies have big data solutions implemented or in production, and over 50% expect to spend over $10MM annually on big data technologies by 2016.

In working with these firms on their big data strategies and initiatives, four patterns are emerging that will shape the big data vendor landscape of new entrants and traditional vendors.

Big data offerings by IBM, Oracle, Teradata, and EMC make it much easier to integrate and manage the new solutions within their existing databases and applications.

Pure-play companies that “play well” with existing data and analytics vendors will continue to be attractive candidates for acquisition.
