CSC announced that it has acquired Infochimps, provider of a platform that combines an open source NoSQL database and Hadoop to deliver a streaming analytics application via the cloud.

According to Infochimps CEO Jim Kaskade, the combination of CSC and Infochimps will rapidly extend CSC’s nascent effort to build out a Big Data analytics service that customers can invoke on demand. Kaskade says the majority of customers will be able to just access a Big Data analytics capability instead of having to acquire someone with special expertise to do so.
