The buzz around HadoopSphere influencer list

There has been a generous dose of reactions to HadoopSphere Top Big Data Influencers list for 2015. Reactions have ranged from cheer and congratulations to some being disappointed at not making the list this year. Listed below are some reactions on social media.

Merv Adrian, analyst at Gartner humbly appreciated the recognition.

The pioneering online television show, The Cube is first time debutant on this list and its tweets were as brimmed with energy as the show.

The big social data influencer, Gregory Piatetsky who runs the KDnuggets site also acknowledged the listing. He has been on this list consistently despite stiff competition from other social magnets.

ODP and Pivotal were quick to acknowledge the recognition for its tech super star, Roman Shaposhnik.


But probably, everyone was not so pleased with this hadoop focused list. Chris Volinsky, AVP at AT&T Research was quick to rub in with a neat jibe.

And yes, there was some more light banter. Especially for Roman Shaponshik and even Milind Bhandarkar as their colleagues vouched for cult status after this recognition.



Once again, Congratulations to all those who made it to HadoopSphere Top Big Data Influencers of 2015 list. Well deserved.
