Around the Data - October 2015 - SQL, OLAP and Entreprise Data Hub

Quite a buzzy month ; so a single but long article on Big Data Ecosystem :

  • The Evolution of Zoosk’s Analytic Platform: The Continued Marriage of Hadoop and OLAP : Interesting feedback on how a company improves its usage of Hadoop and OLAP solutions over the last 3 years. Beyond the mixed world, we can see some improvements on Hadoop side :
    • Hadoop replaced some RDBMS and became the Entreprise Data Hub in some contexts as scaling was easier than RDBMS and Hadoop more mature
    • Hadoop adopted SQL and thus make data easier to query,
    • Efficient data storage (both in terms of size and performance when manipulating them)
