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.

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.
