The enterprise is a closed ecosystem with its own rules. Internet is all about openness and freedom. Solving the `Big Data` problem for an Enterprise requires:
1) Maintain large amounts of structured and unstructured data
2) Complying with internal technical standards and enterprisy architectural guidelines
3) Local as well as global enterprise regulations etc.
I would like to share how Ruby helped in building a scalable Analytic application. The application uses OLAP Cubes and deals with data slicing/dicing.
One of the amazing things that we as Ruby developers benefit from, when using JRuby, is the existing ecosystem of Java libraries and platforms for manipulating Big Data. The most famous, and probably of the most use to rubyists is Hadoop and the Hadoop ecosystem of projects.
This talk will touch on how we, as developers who use Ruby, may be use JRuby within a variety of Hadoop and Hadoop related projects such as HDFS, MapReduce, HBase, Hive, Zookeeper, etc.
