Zum dritten Mal in Folge ist IBM Spitzenreiter im „Big Data Vendor Benchmark“der Experton Group.
Das Beratungshaus hat für die aktuelle Studie 284 Unternehmen unter die Lupe genommen,
von denen sich 100 für die Bewertung qualifiziert haben. IBM konnte sich nicht nur in insgesamt
sieben Kategorien im Leader-Quadranten behaupten, sondern schaffte es in sechs davon auf die
Siegerposition, häufiger als jeder andere der untersuchten Anbieter. Obwohl die Experton-Analysten
für diesen Benchmark einzelne Kriterien strenger bewertet haben, um ein aktuelles Bild der Anbieterlandschaft zu liefern,
konnte IBM ihre Position halten und in einzelnen Kategorien verbessern. Das spiegelt die
konsequente Weiterentwicklung des Themas bei IBM wider”, sagt Holm Landrock, Senior Advisor bei der Experton Group.
