State of the Elephant: Hadoop yesterday, today and tomorrow
November 11 9:00AM
Apache Hadoop is rapidly gaining usage across the enterprise market and has become the primary framework for processing large datasets. It helps companies derive more value from the data that they already have and enables them to collect and analyze more data. Spreading for the early adopters in the internet sites (Yahoo, Facebook, Amazon, LinkedIn and Ebay) to a much wider audience, Hadoop is disrupting the business of analyzing data. The presentation will describe the current state of the project, lessons learned by deploying it at scale, and the roadmap for the future of the project.
