Platforms/breadth will matter more in 2014
The tech trend I'm seeing for 2014 is brand extension. It's not enough to be a one trick pony, so Hadoop distributors and NoSQL databases will be adding to their bag of tricks, emphasizing that there's much more to what they offer than Hadoop clusters or a high-scale DBMS. The next step after that will be consolidation as we get into the big data "trough of disillusionment."

We will likely see more "big data washing" too, as we did with "cloud washing" where vendors stuck the word cloud on any product or service possible, to make the offering seem more modern.

In my opinion there is a high demand for people who has the knowledge on big data since it is limited to find people to fulfill the vacancies.

Great point Laurianne. As soon as a buzzword like Big Data hits a certain saturation it'll appear absolutely everywhere, on any product that remotely features data analysis.

Most IT teams have their conventional databases covered in terms of security and business continuity. But as we enter the era of big data, Hadoop, and NoSQL, protection schemes need to evolve. In fact, big data could drive the next big security strategy shift.
