Hadoop for the Enterprise

TDWI Speaker: Philip Russom, TDWI Research Director

Date: Tuesday, April 14, 2015

Time: 9:00 a.m. PT, 12:00 p.m. ET

Webinar Abstract

Hadoop initially proved its worth as a Spartan but highly scalable data platform for reporting and analytics in Internet firms and similar digital organizations. Its journey is now taking Hadoop into a wider range of industries, use cases, and organizational types. Hadoop is again challenged to prove its worth, this time by satisfying the stringent requirements that traditional IT departments and business units demand of their platforms for enterprise data and business applications.

Hadoop adoption is accelerating. TDWI survey results show that Hadoop clusters in production are up 60% in two years. Almost half of respondents have new Hadoop clusters in development, and these will come online within 12 months. At this rate, 60% of users surveyed will have Hadoop in production by 2016, which is a giant step forward.

The purpose of this Webinar is to enhance users’ understanding of the many new products, technologies, and best practices that have emerged recently around Hadoop. It will also help attendees map newly available options to real-world use cases, with a focus on mainstream enterprise uses, while respecting tried-and-true IT practices and delivering maximum business value.

The Webinar is based on the research findings of a new Best Practices Report by TDWI’s Philip Russom called Hadoop for the Enterprise: Making Data Management Massively Scalable, Agile, Feature-Rich, and Cost-Effective. That report was sponsored by vendor firms Actian Corporation, Cloudera, Exasol, IBM, MapR Technologies, MarkLogic, Pentaho, SAS, Talend, and Trillium Software.

What You Will Learn

  • Issues in making Hadoop suited to traditional IT departments in mainstream industries (not just Internet firms and specialty organizations)
  • New types of data-driven applications enabled by Hadoop 2.0, plus the business and technology drivers behind them
  • Trends and coming adoption of tools and technologies across the broader Hadoop ecosystem of open source projects, vendor products, and user best practices
  • Ten top priorities for enterprise-scope implementations of Hadoop
