Hadoop vs EDWs: Trends in Enterprise Adoption

Watch representatives of GigaOM, Cloudera, Nokia, WinterCorp, and The Cloud of Data discuss Hadoop's role with respect to the data warehouse and economic considerations for Hadoop.

Date: Wednesday, Mar 13 2013

Description

There is an interesting clash of perspectives occurring in the enterprise market between the Hadoop newcomers and the old school data warehousing providers. The latter are attempting to paint Hadoop into a corner, narrowing its usefulness to a limited set of functionality while at the other end, the Hadoop providers are expanding the functionality of Hadoop to broaden its applicability and usefulness. In the middle are enterprises who are trying to figure out how Hadoop fits into their existing environment alongside data warehouses and other legacy systems. They are typically conservative and pragmatic and are primarily interested in reducing the cost of their environment while squeezing more value out of their data.
