Busting 10 Myths about Hadoop

Webinar Abstract

Although Hadoop and related technologies have been with us for several years now, most business intelligence (BI) professionals and their business counterparts still harbor a few misconceptions that need to be corrected about Hadoop and related technologies such as MapReduce. For example, many people think Hadoop is a database management system designed exclusively for analytics with unstructured data in Internet firms; actually, none of that is accurate. This presentation lists the 10 most common myths about Hadoop, then corrects them. The goal is to clarify what Hadoop is and does relative to BI, as well as in which business and technology situations Hadoop-based BI, data warehousing, and analytics can be useful.

You will learn:

  • What Hadoop really is and really does 
  • Hadoop’s emerging role in data warehousing, business intelligence, analytics, etc. 
  • Why Hadoop will become a common extension of data warehouse architectures
