Why You Should Care About the Apache Hadoop Ecosystem

Hortonworks Sandbox for HDP and HDF is your chance to get started on learning, developing, testing and trying out new features. Each download comes preconfigured with interactive tutorials, sample data and developments from the Apache community.

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.
