Pivotal Labs: Besides the source of Paul Maritz‘s new company name, this
is an agile software development consulting firm focused on Ruby on Rails,

Have you heard of products like IBM’s InfoSphere Streams, Tibco’s Event
Processing product, or Oracle’s CEP product? All good examples of
commercially available stream processing technologies which help you process
events in real-time.
I’ve been asked what I consider as “Big Data” versus “Small Data”
