Open source Apache Hadoop is a great framework for distributed processing of large data sets. But there’s a difference between “playing” with big data versus solving real problems. The reality is that Hadoop alone is not enough. In fact, almost every organization that plans to use Hadoop for production use quickly discovers that it lacks the required features for enterprise use. And, fewer still have the Hadoop specialists on hand to navigate through the complexity to build reliable, robust applications. As a result, many Hadoop projects never make it to production as executives say, “we just don’t have the skills.” In this session, we will discuss these enterprise capabilities and why they’re important: analytics, visualization, security, enterprise integration, developer/admin tools, and more. Additionally, we will share several real-world client examples who have found it necessary to use an enterprise-grade Hadoop platform to tackle some of the most interesting and challenging business problems.
