At StampedeCon 2014, Tom Wheeler (Cloudera) presented, "The Evolution of Data Analysis with Hadoop."
This session will lead the audience through the evolution of data analysis in Hadoop to illustrate its progression from the original low-level, batch-oriented MapReduce approach to today’s higher-level interactive tools that require very little technical knowledge. We’ll discuss Apache Crunch, Hive, Impala and Solr.
While the nature of this talk is somewhat technical, no prior knowledge of Hadoop or any specific programming language is required. Frequent live demonstrations of the tools discussed will emphasize that analyzing data in Hadoop can be as easy as using a relational database or Internet search engine.
