NewVantage recently surveyed a range of data professionals at large enterprises, and reached a somewhat ironic conclusion:
Big Data has very little to do with "big volume" at most companies. Instead, the ability to ingest a variety of data sources, including streaming data, drives Big Data projects:
Looking at the results, a mere 28% of enterprises today see volume of data as a primary driver for their Big Data projects, falling to 25% in three years. Instead, a whopping 64% are motivated by the need to analyze streaming data, analyze new data types, or... Read More >

While AOL may evoke thoughts of dial-up broadband for some, the company today drives over $2 billion in annual revenues connecting advertisers to consumers of its premium content, including Huffington Post, Moviefone, Engadget, TechCrunch, Patch, and Stylelist. MongoDB provides the data infrastructure for a significant portion of AOL’s business, both on the content and advertising sides of AOL.
