If you talk about Big Data you cannot mention Cloudera that not only one of the first Hadoop distribution, but it’s really strong (and the fact that has start early in the big data world will really help) in the services aspects (including Big Data as a Service offers on different platform included Azure), both for support and also for training/certification. I’ve met them previously in 2014 and I was really curious to listen something new and their point of view on how it is transforming.
Andrea has a great overview of the Cloudier presentation from Data Field Day. Open source is a huge advantage when it’s done right.
