The Niche Players
“In 2017, we see a growing number of Niche Players,” Gartner says. “This year the Magic Quadrant has seen a ‘zoom in’ effect, resulting from the broadening of the market definition combined with a higher bar for inclusion in terms of revenue and geographic and industry adoption. We are also seeing a fast maturation of the market's interest in Hadoop distributions and new competing approaches for data lakes (such as storage on AWS or Azure). Hadoop distributions are no longer seen as a mandatory piece of an LDW; moreover, the push to the cloud has further challenged Hadoop distribution vendors that were mainly designed for on-premises deployments.”

    Great piece, but the question is given that Gartner has changed the goalposts, can you really trust the Gartner Magic Quadrant report? Some interesting analysis by EXASOL over on CBR. http://www.cbronline.com/news/enterprise-it/can-really-trust-gartner-magic-quadrant/
