Description

Hadoop provides the ability to extract business intelligence from extremely large, heterogeneous data sets that were previously impractical to store and process in traditional data warehouses. The challenge now is in bridging the gap between the data warehouse and Hadoop. In this talk we’ll discuss some steps that Orbitz has taken to bridge this gap, including examples of how Hadoop and Hive are used to aggregate data from large data sets, and how that data can be combined with relational data to create new reports that provide actionable intelligence to business users.
