Even though Cloudera's valuation took a hit in its IPO, investors are paying a big premium to own shares of the software developer. Cloudera jumped 21 percent in its stock market debut on Friday to $18.10, giving the company a market capitalization of $2.3 billion. It's trading at nine times 2016 revenue, almost triple the price-to-sales ratio for rival Hortonworks. The explosion of online video, social networking and mobile communications have left corporations swamped with data that their legacy machines aren't equipped to handle and their old software was never designed to analyze   Read More ...
