In Pictures: 12 Big Data predictions for 2014

It's been one of the big buzzwords of 2013, but what does 2014 have in store for Big Data? looks at 12 ways the technology and the market will evolve in the coming year.

One NoSQL Database Company Will Hold a Successful IPO by the End of 2014 To signal the widely accepted commercialization of big data platforms, at least one Hadoop or NoSQL provider will go public in 2014, predicts Larry Warnock, president and CEO of Gazzang, a provider of security solutions for big data and cloud environments.

"I'm not going to predict which one, but I expect at least one Hadoop or NoSQL provider to go public in 2014," Warnock says. "According to Wikibon, revenue for NoSQL software and services made up $286 million in 2012 and is forecast to reach $1.825 billion in 2017. The market is being driven by the growing enterprise demand for more flexible, scalable and affordable data management solutions (both analytical and transactional) designed for the new age of the cloud and big data."

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
