Infochimps Targets The Enterprise
Austin-based Infochimps is targeting the enterprise with a new, Big Data cloud service, the company said last week, aimed at Fortune 1000 enterprises. Infochimps said the new, Infochimps Enterprise Cloud is aimed at helping enterprises explore how big data technology can unlock revenue from their data, and will help those companies get up and running with big data technology such as Hadoop and NoSQL without the long, 18-24 month time it typically takes to deploy those products. Infochimps did not announce pricing on the offering, but said the offering will allow enterprises to tap into Infochimps' own managed services and combined offerings from its network of data center providers.
