Forrester: Big Data market to grow three times faster than tech overall

Led by newer kinds of databases and software for distributed storage and computing, the Big Data market is set to grow at three times the rate of the entire technology market, according to a new report from Forrester Research Inc.
Forrester’s report, “Big Data Management Solutions Forecast 2016 to 2021,” which the analyst firm claims is the first of its kind, divvies up the Big Data market into six separate chunks – namely, enterprise data warehousing, NoSQL, Hadoop, big data integration, data virtualization and in-memory data fabric. Of these, it reckons that Hadoop, NoSQL and in-memory data fabric are expected to see the most significant growth in the next six years.
