Apache Hadoop Meets Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity has become the topic of conversation for organizations across every industry as attack surfaces have expanded with the digital, social, and mobile world. As it becomes more difficult to protect organizations, professionals are turning to new technologies in order to avoid massive reputational, monetary, and intellectual property losses. In recent years a convergence of factors have occurred that is putting Apache Hadoop and Apache Spark at the forefront of the cybersecurity arms race.

Driving a True Customer 360 with Apache Hadoop

Organizations spanning all industries are in pursuit of Customer 360, which aims to integrate and enrich customer information across multiple channels, systems, devices and products in order to improve the interaction experience and maximize the value delivered. With an Enterprise Data Hub, powered by Apache Hadoop, organizations can effectively stitch together a true 360-degree view of their customer base that goes beyond the traditional segmentation attributes in order to deliver personalized offerings, improve marketing effectiveness and drive down churn.

Data Driven Product & Service Development

Every industry is currently in the midst of a transformation as the world becomes even more hyper-connected, and agile players in the space turn to data in order to gain market share by driving product differentiation. Many of the applications that we know of today, and will require in the future, leverage the use of these new and emerging data source in order to provide more value. IoT is a great example of data driven products and services. As the internet of things (IoT) advances, it becomes critical for organizations to understand how to leverage this information to better fuel the next wave of application innovation.
