A couple of years ago, big data was just a buzzword and companies were struggling to understand its role in their strategies. Today, leading enterprises are redefining their businesses with the power of data, which has increased the need for big data systems integrators. As traditional system integrators find themselves at a loss to meet enterprise big data business requirements, the stage is set for new big data system integrators that can help organizations develop new data products, services and solutions, gain new market and consumer intelligence and achieve competitive business advantage using data to plan and make better business decisions.
Having identified the need by enterprises for these professional services and outsourced solutions, Mani Chhabra founded Cloudwick in 2010, a leading big data systems integrator and service provider for the Global 1000. The company provides Hadoop, Cassandra, Spark and Cloud services, including pilot to production system integration, staffing, professional services such as quickstart programs, and onsite and remote managed services. It didn’t take long for Cloudwick to gain a leadership position in the market, and within a span of four years Mani has grown the company’s customer base to include these
