What do you get when you combine Big Data technologies….like Pig and
Hive? A flying pig?
No, you get a “Logical Data Warehouse”.
My general prediction is that Cloudera and Hortonworks are both aggressively
moving to fulfilling a vision which looks a lot like Gartner’s “Logical
Data Warehouse”….namely, “the next-generation data warehouse that
improves agility, enables innovation and responds more efficiently to
changing business requirements.”
In 2012, Infochimps (now CSC) leveraged its early use of stream processing,
NoSQLs, and Hadoop to create a design pattern which combined real-time,
ad-hoc, and batch analytics. This concept of combining the best-in-breed Big
Data technologies will continue to advance across the industry until the
entire legacy (and proprietary) data infrastructure stack will be replaced
with a new (and open) one.
As this is happening, I predi... (more)
SAP customers are confused about the positioning between SAP Sybase IQ and
SAP Hana as it applies to data warehousing. Go figure, so is SAP. You want to
learn about their data warehousing offering, and all you hear is “Hana
this” and “Hana that”.
It reminds me of the time after I left Teradata when the BI appliances came
on the scene. First Netezza, then Greenplum, then Vertica and Aster Data,
then ParAccel. Everyone was confused about what the BI appliance was in
relation to the EDW. Do I need an EDW, a BI appliance, an EDW + BI appliance?
With SAP, Sybase IQ is supposed to be ... (more)

Big Data is confusing to most executives. It’s this nebulous concept of
applying technologies from Yahoo!, Facebook, Linkedin, and Twitter in such a
way that the organization will truly become data-driven and, equally as
important, be able to do so quickly. Unfortunately, only a few companies are
really realizing its full potential.
That’s why Infochimps is announcing its Enterprise Cloud – A Big Data
cloud service built specifically for Fortune 1000 enterprises who want to
rapidly explore how big data technology can unlock revenue from their data.
The Infochimps Enterprise Clou... (more)
What’s a $15B powerhouse in information technology (IT) and professional
services doing with an open source based Big Data startup?
It starts with “Generation-OS”. We’re not talking about Gen-Y or Gen-Z.
We’re talking Generation ‘Open Source’.
Massive disruption is occurring in information technology as businesses are
building upon and around recent advances in analytics, cloud computing and
storage, and an omni-channel experience across all connected devices.
However, traditional paradigms in software development are not supporting the
accelerating rate of change in mobile, web,... (more)
