Hadoop Software Market to Hit $812.8 Million in 2016, Says IDC

Software related to Hadoop and MapReduce topped $77 million in revenue last year.

ZDNet: Researchers at IDC say the market for products related to the Hadoop big data analytics software is about to take off. Last year, enterprises spend just $77 million on Hadoop-MapReduce products, but by 2016, IDC believes the market will grow to $812.8 million. That's a 60 percent annual growth rate.
