How Salesforce.com Uses Hadoop

A session at Dreamforce X

Thursday 20th September, 2012

9:00am to 10:00am (PST)

Hadoop is the technology of choice for processing large data sets. At salesforce.com, we service internal and product big data use cases using a combination of Hadoop, Java MapReduce, Pig, Force.com, and machine learning algorithms. In this session, we will discuss an internal use case and a product use case:

Product Metrics: Internally, we measure feature usage using a combination of Hadoop, Pig, and the Force.com platform (Custom Objects and Analytics).

Community-Based Recommendations: In Chatter, our most successful people and file recommendations are built on a collaborative filtering algorithm that is implemented on Hadoop using Java MapReduce.
