Hadoop for Dummies
Data volumes are doubling every year, and today, 80 percent of data is unstructured (think Tweets, video, website click trails, etc.). Traditional tools designed to work with relatively large information volumes simply can’t handle this “big data,” so new analytic applications such as Hadoop that are based on the MapReduce framework have been introduced to the market to help organizations bring order to data from diverse sources and glean insights that were previously unattainable.
This e-book, Hadoop for Dummies!, is designed to help you leverage Hadoop to make the most out of the mountains of information that are now available to your organization.
Inside, read chapters that explain:
- Why MapReduce technology evolved to address the challenges of “big data,” and how it works
- How companies in different industries are profiting from "big data" analytics
- Why generic, out-of-the-box MapReduce isn’t suitable for most organizations
- 10 tips for getting the most from your Hadoop implementation
- And more!
