This is part three of a series of blog posts covering new developments in the Hadoop pantheon that enable productivity throughout the lifecycle of big data.  In a series of posts, we’re exploring the full lifecycle of data in the enterprise: Introducing new data sources to the Hadoop filesystem via ETL, processing this data in data-flows with Pig and Python to expose new and interesting properties, consuming this data as an analyst in Hive, and discovering and accessing these resources as analysts and application developers using HCatalog and Templeton.…
