“Over the past year, the rest of the world has discovered ‘the secret’ of Hadoop and Big Data in general — our recent survey shows that Big Data projects in the enterprise will emerge from early adopter status in two years,” said Tony Baer, principal analyst for Ovum. “The vendor community has discovered what those on the front lines already know: there is a business case for Big Data and a place for NoSQL in the enterprise mainstream. The technology is rapidly maturing, and the time to start planning for adoption is now.”
“It’s been exciting to see the rapid adoption of Apache Hadoop, as demonstrated by the wide range of Hadoop World sessions describing production applications,” said Doug Cutting, creator of Apache Hadoop and Cloudera architect. “Hadoop World gives its attendees the tools they need to make real and lasting advancements to their organizations.”
