Hadoop pulls Big Data analytics into mainstream (Part One) - 06-20-2012 , 07:48 AM
Additional database support in Yellowfin 6.1 targets Big Data
We added support for Hadoop, and a stack of other databases, in the latest release of our Business Intelligence software – Yellowfin 6.1 – which was released last week in order to meet organizations’ growing Big Data needs.
But, we’re not here to talk about Yellowfin. The point is that Hadoop is enabling the analysis of expansive and increasingly complex data, as well social media analytics and text-mining applications, and allows businesses to analyze much larger volumes of data than they would be able to through traditional database systems. And, technology providers need to offer technical support, and corporate IT professionals need to consider Hadoop as a viable means for leveraging their burgeoning data assets.
