January CHUG: What's the Big Deal with Hadoop? The Elephant in the Room.

1616 Camden, 3rd Floor 1616 Camden Road , Charlotte, NC (map)

Discussion Summary: 

Hadoop has come to symbolize big data, itself central to this century’s industrial revolution: the digital transformation of business. Every industry is becoming data driven, built around its information systems. Big data tools like Hadoop enable organizations to best benefit from all the data they generate.  With extensibility as a fundamental design property, Hadoop’s ability to embrace SQL, Machine Learning, and real-time processing with Spark allow it to evolve and address today's critical mission drivers.  Likewise organizations have evolved to capitalize on these capabilities utilizing agile, iterative methods and curating data as an asset.
