structuredata2014_600x400_awardwinner_2a-300x200When we started DataTorrent in 2012, we knew that our platform would revolutionize the Big Data world. Which is why today we are proud to announce that we have been selected as a winner of the inaugural Gigaom Structure Data Readers’ Choice Awards in the infrastructure category. The awards recognize innovative and promising startup companies who are focused on improving data analysis.

Now more than ever, enterprises need the ability to process, analyze, and act upon seemingly never-ending and ever-growing streams of data. With an expected 50 billion Internet-connected devices by 2020, the increase in data generation is only bound to grow as well.

With this significant growth in data expected in the next decade, there will also be a need for more efficient data processing and analysis. Even though many organizations are already leveraging technology like Hadoop to address their Big Data needs, sometimes they have to wait many hours or even days for their data jobs to finish due to the batch nature of processing.

To extract the maximum benefits from data, organizations need to derive insights seconds after that data is generated. And that’s what we’ve built with DataTorrent. Organizations can now analyze, act on, and interpret their data in real-time, as it is being generated. Billions of individual data events per second can be supported ‘ light years ahead of anything available on the market today.
