Concurrent, Inc. and Think Big Analytics Partner to Unleash the Power of Big Data in the Enterprise
Collaboration Supports Ever-Growing Cascading Community; Offers Services to Drive Further Business Value From Big Data Application Developments on Apache Hadoop

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/02/13 -- Concurrent, Inc., the enterprise Big Data application platform company, today announced a new partnership with Think Big Analytics, a provider of data science and engineering services for Big Data and big analytics projects. Now, enterprises can leverage the power of the Cascading application framework and have access to the Think Big team of expert Big Data engineers, architects and data scientists to drive further business value from their Big Data deployments on Apache Hadoop™.

Enterprises are moving from Big Data as a project to being in the "business of data," and are leveraging Cascading to process and analyze exponentially growing volumes of data. Big Data has broad reaching and significant untapped value for the enterprise.

While Cascading allows users to leverage existing skills and IT investments to instantly create and run Big Data applications on Hadoop, enterprises often require external support to integrate Cascading into their infrastructure. As a result, Concurrent partnered with Think Big, which is known for its strategic planning, implementation and training expertise. Think Big provides valuable expertise to execute a Big Data strategy quickly and with low risk. The Big Data consulting firm provides services that ensure enterprises have the right foundation in place to make the most of their Big Data strategies. Think Big will provide customized consulting and implementation services to support enterprises' Big Data application deployments on Hadoop in order to maximize each project's business value.
