The world is continuing to see data volumes grow at exponential rates as businesses collect ever richer and more detailed data sets based on our behaviour. Until recently, analysing these data sets was reserved for the privileged few companies that had the resources and computing power available.
Since the arrival of Hadoop, MapReduce and relatively inexpensive / low commitment 'on-demand' computing resources such as Amazon's EC2 infrastructure, the playing field has changed. Processing data on a massive scale is now accessible for all sized companies, enabling them to extract competitive advantages from their data.
Stoat Software specialises in the Hadoop Eco-system, enabling companies to benefit from Hadoop based solutions via a combination of consultancy, training and software development.
