If I could invest in tech...
To avoid conflicts of interest, our company forbids reporters from investing directly in tech companies that they cover or even get close to covering. As near as I can get is buying an ETF or mutual fund that has shares of ALL tech securities. Were that not the case, I'd put my money on companies seriously backing Apache Spark, which offers a compelling combination of analysis approaches including machine learning, SQL, graph, streaming data analysis and more.

Now the caveats: The Spark one-stop-shop for analytics concept is being widely copied, and it's also a threat to many vendors who know their best chance of making money in the long term CAN'T rest on providing a commoditized storage platform (like Hadoop). It's also true that it's not easy being best at many different forms of a analysis, so look for best-of-breed threats in individual analysis domains. I think 2015 will be a crucial year for Databricks/Apache Spark to prove that it has a highly usable, highly versatile analytics platform that can support efficient analysis workflows and emedding of decision- and prediction-services into applications.
