Hadoop for the Enterprise: Making Data Management Massively Scalable, Agile, Feature-Rich, and Cost Effective

    19

    Many business drivers—from the need to scale big data and traditional enterprise data, the need for more economical data platforms, a demand for longer data life span, greater competitive pressure and more—point to Hadoop as a solution for the enterprise. That’s why the Hadoop adoption has accelerated over the past two years and continues to rise.

    On a technical level, the need for a data platform that scales up to handle exploding volumes, a scalable extension for existing IT systems in warehousing, archiving and content management, and the need to get BI value out of non-structured data are pointing to Hadoop. Meanwhile, the need for business to derive value out of big data is also causing enterprises to look at Hadoop as a computational platform for business analytics.
