Paradigm 4 has been named to UBM Tech Channel’s CRN 2013 Big Data 100 list, which identifies “vendors that have demonstrated an ability to innovate in bringing to market products and services that help businesses manage big data.”

We’re pleased that UBM has recognized that SciDB uniquely offers the ability to perform ad-hoc analytics at big-data scale, letting data scientists concentrate on analytical problems without forcing them to grapple with infrastructure.  Infrastructure here means data extraction, parallelism, memory management, or other headaches like the “plumbing code” you have to write to make MapReduce work. We like to say “If you want to be a computer scientist, learn MapReduce.  If you want to be a data scientist, use SciDB.”  We’re glad the world is noticing.
