The Full Stack, Part I. Thoughts on Linked Data Business Models. Scott Brinker recently published a great blog post covering 7 business models for Linked Data. The post is well worth a read and reviews the potential for both direct and indirect revenue generation from a range of different business models.

I’ve been thinking about these same issues myself recently so I’m pleased to see that others are doing similar analysis. Scott’s conclusion that, currently, Linked Data is more likely to drive indirection revenue is sound, and reflects where we are with the deployment of the technology.

Meet the Big Data Equivalent of the LAMP Stack

For example, Joe Cunningham, head of technology strategy and innovation at credit card giant Visa, told the audience at last year’s Hadoop World that he would like to see Hadoop evolve from an alpha/beta environment into mainstream use for transaction analysis, but has concerns about integration and operations management. What’s been missing for Big Data analytics has been a LAMP (Linux, Apache HTTP Server, MySQL and PHP) equivalent. Fortunately, there’s an emerging LAMP-like stack for Big Data aggregation, processing and analytics that includes: While that’s still a lot of moving parts for an enterprise to install and manage, we’re almost to a point where there’s an end-to-end “hello world” for analytical data management.
