Survey Says Hadoop Isn’t Replacing Data Warehouses
There is a reason why Hadoop has become the center of the analytics discussion. The framework can process more kinds of information and faster than traditional data warehouses at a fraction of the cost, yet a new study reveals that organizations are in no rush to switch.
Nearly two=thirds of the 319 decision-makers that Snowflake Computing Inc., an emerging provider of cloud-based analytics, surveyed for the report believe Hadoop will not have any impact on their legacy data environments. That provides, perhaps for the first time, a tangible figure to back the long-standing argument that the open-source platform won’t bring about the demise of the traditional data warehouse anytime soon.
