That’s why we are excited to announce that we’ve expanded our partnership with Concurrent, Inc. to simplify and accelerate application development on Hadoop.

There are two components to this expanded partnership.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is in its infancy. You can buy wireless bathroom scales to upload data to monitoring tools helping you manage your weight. You can buy a connected refrigerator that keeps track of the inventory to remind you what you need to buy. It’s fascinating to think about the future of possibilities. In a recent podcast on the SAP Future of Business with Game-Changers Radio, panelist Matt Healey (Analyst at Technology Business Research) commented that he wasn’t ready for the day when his scale and refrigerator talked.…

One of the key concerns in the financial industry today is the alarming increase in fraudulent activities.  It is estimated that over $12 billion is spent on fraud detection and prevention and that number is projected to increase significantly over the next few years. Customer data gets compromised and this leads to a decreased level of customer satisfaction and retention, which results in revenue declines for financial organizations.

There is no doubt that enterprises recognize how Big Data is crucial to monetizing their business.  The information contained in the volumes of data collected can offer key insights into product, customer and competitive trends.  There are a variety of sophisticated tools for Big Data analytics and processing but most big data implementations are based on rudimentary technologies like FTP based scripts for data collection and distribution.

Although FTP is a widely used protocol, there is an inherent lack of reliability in this approach.  …

We’ve said many times that in order for Apache Hadoop to succeed as the next generation data platform and power the Modern Data Architecture there must be a thriving ecosystem of enterprise vendors around it.
