Why is MapReduce still a niche technology? An evaluation of the current state of MapReduce.

A session at BigDataCloud

Friday 8th July, 2011

7:00pm to 7:30pm (PST)

It’s now midway through 2011. IBM, EMC and Cloudera all have their own distributions of Hadoop.

Yet despite increasing momentum, growing media hype, and all-around potential, MapReduce is still a niche technology, used by specialized teams of programmers in a small (albeit growing) number of companies. Find out why.
