The Future of Hadoop: Becoming an Enterprise Standard

A session at Strata 2012

Wednesday 29th February, 2012

10:40am to 11:20am (PST)

During the last 12 months, Apache Hadoop has received an enormous amount of attention for its ability to transform the way organizations capitalize on their data in a cost effective manner. The technology has evolved to a point where organizations of all sizes and industries are testing its power as a potential solution to their own data management challenges.

However, there are still technology and knowledge gaps hindering adoption of Apache Hadoop as an enterprise standard. Among these gaps are the complexity of the system, the lack of technical content that exists to assist with its usage, and that it requires intensive developer and data scientist skills to be used properly. With virtually every Fortune 500 company constructing their Hadoop strategy today, many in the IT community are wondering what the future of Hadoop will look like.

In this session, Hortonworks CEO Eric Baldeschwieler will look at the current state of Apache Hadoop, how the ecosystem is evolving by working together to close the existing technological and knowledge gaps, and present a roadmap for the future of the project.
