The Bloor Group: Tech Lab Series - Locked and Loaded

This inaugural episode of Tech Lab from veteran Data Scientist, Dr. Geoffrey Malafsky, demonstrates how to lay the foundation for an enterprise data hub using Cloudera. As a former nanotechnologist for the US Navy, Malafsky outlines the critical success factors for designing, implementing and managing an enterprise data hub. In this first part of a three-part series, he shows how Cloudera can be used to load, process and normalize real-world disparate data, preparing it for use in both operational and analytical environments.

As the Hadoop ecosystem evolves, its potential value to organizations increases, and not just for the management of so-called Big Data. In fact, the vector of innovation for Hadoop 2.0 will likely trend toward the increasingly heterogeneous and mission-critical world of enterprise data. The ultimate vision will blend these two worlds in an enterprise data hub, essentially bridging the deterministic domain of business decision-making with the exploratory potential of Machine Learning and Big Data Analytics.
