Big Data Landscape 2016

Matt Turck has updated his famous Big Data Landscape Infographic for 2016  on his LinkedIn post “Is Big Data Still a Thing? (The 2016 Big Data Landscape)“. He includes commentary on the maturing ecosystem, from the Infrastructure, to the Analytics, through to the Applications. Also included were links to the full size image and the full list of companies.

It’s instructive to look at the taxonomy of the landscape. The overall changes are an expansion of the Cloud components in Infrastructure, and a marked growth in the analytics and applications layers above the maturing infrastructure.
