Hadoop as an Analytic Platform: Why Not?

Integrating Hadoop with existing data sources, workflows and analytics can be a real challenge. While some components, like Hive and Spark, can give SQL access to Hadoop data, there isn’t much that enables Hadoop to be treated as a genuine BI and analytics platform, capable of running multiple jobs that serve multiple users and multiple applications. But what if you could turn Hadoop into a versatile, high performance development platform, forgoing all the pain of figuring out how and where to manage big data?

Register for this episode of The Briefing Room to hear veteran Analyst William McKnight as he discusses the fairly swift evolution of Hadoop’s capabilities. He’ll be briefed by Jim Hare of Actian, who will tout his company’s latest addition to its Analytic Platform: Hadoop SQL Edition. He will show how Actian has leveraged Hadoop and its scale out file system to create a fully functioning platform, providing everything from an analytic database to machine learning.
