Visualizing the Universe of Big Data

Our friends at have put together a fantastic new infographic leveraging data from Wikibon’s Big Data Vendor Revenue and Market Forecast, 2012 – 2017 report. It provides a compelling view of the Big Data universe and illustrates the real revenue vendors are deriving from Big Data. They range from the mega-planets (if you’ll go with me on this analogy) IBM, HP and EMC to the smaller but powerful emerging planets like Hortonworks, 10gen and DataStax.

Ok, not the greatest analogy but still a great infographic:

Nice work by Forbes. Check out the original report, which includes in-depth analysis of market drivers, at And check out Wikibon’s own collection of infographics, covering Big Data and other topics, here.

    Cool chart. But it looks like your legend isn’t correct. The red and brown colors should be swapped (e.g. software should be red and services brown), assuming Accenture, PWC, etc. are deriving their revenues from services vs software.

    services and software are swapped in the legend.
