There are some key trends that are emerging in 2017 within the Hadoop and big data ecosystem, which center around the increase of the use of the cloud. These trends are the underpinning for a larger shift toward purpose-driven products positioned as the core of an organization’s data strategy. While these trends are clearest among early adopters with mature deployments, what about those more traditional end user organizations in the midst of a digital transformation? What are their views on these trends? How are their organizations reconciling the needs and desires to pave a path forward? John Mertic and Cupid Chan present findings on big data trends, based on data from the ODPi End User Advisory Board (TAB). John and Cupid share real end-user perspectives from companies like GE on how they are using big data tools, the challenges they face, and where they are looking to focus investments—all from a vendor-neutral viewpoint.
