There’s been a growing interest in Hadoop & Big Data, Here’s the Proof:

I like to keep an eye on Technology Trends. One of the ways I do that is by subscribing to leading magazines for articles – I may not always read the entire article but I definitely read the headlines to see what Industry is talking about. during last 12 months or so I have seen a lot of buzz around Big Data and I thought to myself – It would be nice to see a Trend line for Big Data. Taking it a step further, I am also interested in seeing if there is a correlation between growing trend in “Hadoop” and “Big Data”. Also, I wanted to see how it compares with the Terms like Business Intelligence and Data Science. With this, I turned to Google Trends to quickly create a Trend report to see the results.

Here’s the report:

Big Data Hadoop Business Intelligence

Here are some observations:

1) There’s a correlation between Trend of Big Data and Hadoop. In fact, it looks like growing interest in Hadoop fueled interest in “Big Data”.

2) Trend line of Big Data and Hadoop overtook that of Business Intelligence in Oct 2012 and sep 2012 respectively.

3) Decline in Trend line of Business Intelligence.

4) There seems to be a steady increase in Trend line for Business Analytics and Data Science.

And Here’s the Google Trend report URL: http://www.google.com/trends/explore#q=Big%20Data%2C%20Hadoop%2C%20Business%20Intelligence%2C%20Business%20Analytics%2C%20Data%20Science&cmpt=q

What do you think about these trends?
