The big events this week are the Hadoop Summit in San Jose and also MongoDB World in NYC. 

Apache™ Hadoop® distributions products from Altiscale, ArenaData, Hortonworks, IBM, and Infosys are now ODPi Runtime Compliant so that all now comply with base level standards which is great for standardization.   I will be talking to the ODPi in an upcoming Dzone interactive webinar for all those with questions (or leave comments here).

HDP 2.5 release will contain Zeppelin, Apache Atlas and Apache Ranger, a preview of the new version of Spark, improved Ambari, Apache Phoenix, and more.
