insideHPC, the Web’s premier short-format HPC news site, today announced the launch of inside-BigData.com, a sister-site providing news about the rapidly expanding field of Big Data Analytics. With 60,000 unique visitors and more than 900,000 page views per month, insideHPC has become a trusted destination for supercomputing news. inside-BigData, is designed to replicate that success and become the leader in predictive analytics news.
The growth of unstructured data is really exploding due to billions of new mobile devices coming online every year,” said Rich Brueckner, president of insideHPC. “inside-BigData will focus on the people and HPC technologies that are being used to transform that Big Data into business insight. We believe that Big Data and Predictive Analytics are going to be the biggest IT growth areas in the next decade, and we are excited to add this new focus to our news and information portfolio.”
Given its parent site’s emphasis on high performance computing, inside-BigData will specialize in covering the leading-edge software, networking, and storage technologies that will enable Big Data to be turned rapidly into business value.
Every industry and government institution has been gathering data for decades, but few are effectively analyzing it and fewer still are using it to build strategy and dictate tactical decision making. The organizations that embrace this trend first will have an edge on their competitors. Those that don’t will find it increasingly difficult to accomplish their goals” said Dan Olds, CEO of Gabriel Consulting Group and Chief Editor of inside-BigData. “We now have the technology and tools to allow any organization to become an ‘Analytics Led Enterprise’. The possibilities are both exciting and vast – suddenly, anything’s possible.”
inside-BigData will debut with a strong advertising base that includes Convey Computing, Nvidia, Mellanox, Panasas, Penguin Computing, and Scalable Informatics.
As a smaller company, we have to focus our marketing efforts to be more productive and efficient at generating interest,” said Joe Landman, CEO of Scalable Informatics. “Since our advertising efforts began on insideHPC, we were pleased to discover that some of our best and most frequent customers are readers of insideHPC. This publication has allowed us to more efficiently communicate with our intended market. “Now that the team at insideHPC has branched out first with inside-Startups, and now with inside-BigData, we’re looking forward to reaching a whole new set of potential customers who could benefit from our scalable storage solutions.”
