Why You Should Care About the Apache Hadoop Ecosystem

· Big Data Zone

The Big Data Zone is presented by Exaptive.  Learn how rapid data application development can address the data science shortage.

In March 2013, I was at 33rd Degree - "A Conference for Java Masters." I had two talks, including a new one: "You are not Facebook or Google? Why you should still care about Big Data". It is a great talk to give an overview about big data, especially from a business perspective (paradigm shift, business value, challenges). However, I also talk about alternatives for big data from a technology perspective, mainly about the defacto standard Apache Hadoop, its ecosystem (Hive, Pig, HBase, Oozie, Sqoop, etc.), distributions (Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR), and tooling (i.e. big data suites, e.g. Talend, Informatica, Oracle, IBM).

I want to share the slides with you:

As always, I appreciate every feedback, questions and other comments.

The Big Data Zone is presented by Exaptive.  Learn about how to rapidly iterate data applications, while reusing existing code and leveraging open source technologies.
