Thanks to big data, today an organization can quickly obtain the necessary information from an unordered data set and deploy it effectively. The growing popularity of big data analytics has led to a significant increase in the number of companies providing big data solutions and related services.

Today, there are almost 1000 big data analytics companies in the global market, and this number may be very confusing. Big data skills, experience, and related technical expertise can significantly vary among vendors, which may puzzle anyone looking for a big data service provider.
