Top 5 Emerging Big Data Open-Source Technologies 2013

Big Data is in and of itself a new phenomenon, and keeping track of all the emergent technologies in the field can be dizzying. With that in mind, here are a few technologies to keep an eye on as they mature and evolve throughout 2013! 1. Cloudera Impala While Impala isn’t the newest on this list, it’s definitely one to watch out for in 2013. Cloudera’s implementation of real-time data processing in Hadoop is inspired- Hadoop’s disk-based storage format isn’t normally known for real-time ad-hoc query capability, but Impala uses some great open-source technologies to implement it. It uses the same metadata… View full post »

Analytic Trends and Autonomy

One of the emerging ideas in Big Data handling is one of merging self-learning machines with autonomous analysis to create a sort of Star Trek computer for trends analysis and event-driven architectures. The possibilities are growing daily as technology improves and Big Data gets bigger. It may be possible for such learning machines to eventually formulate their own hypothesis regarding the data and present new ideas to business leaders on their own or even be authorized to act on their findings automatically. Currently, it’s possible to leverage information discovery in such a way as to detect relationships between what… View full post »

6 Open Source Big Data Technologies to Keep Tabs On

It’s safe to say that ‘big data’ is the big buzzword de jour, and that is unlikely to change. Many of the major players in the tech industry are leveraging big data to spectacular and varied effect, and though it may be used a little too much as a buzzword, it is one of the most important developments in the tech industry. What’s more, the cotemporaneous rise of open source software means that many of the most exciting big data technologies are open source, with strong communities developing around many big data tools. In this article, we’ll run through a… View full post »

Big Data Overview Course: Why Everyone Should Take It

Google. Facebook. Github. Twitter. LinkedIn. Microsoft. Any of these names sound familiar to you? I’d imagine they do: they’re some of the many big names in the technology and web industry today, and they all share one very important thing in common: they’re processing terabytes, sometimes even petabytes, of data a day. This means they need a reliable, robust, and scalable network architecture that can meet the growing demand they have for data processing each day: a network architecture that includes services and software like NoSQL, Hadoop, BigTable, and MapReduce. Each one of these tools is a very specialized software solution designed… View full post »
