How do you move customers on to bigger things—like submitting a form or completing a purchase? Hadoop makes it easier to analyze, visualize and ultimately change how visitors behave on your website. Here you can see how an online retailer can optimize buying paths to reduce bounce rate and improve conversion. Use HDP to refine website clickstream data and analyze and visualize this refined data using the Power View feature in Microsoft Excel 2013.
Security breaches happen. And when they do, your server logs may be your best line of defense. Hadoop takes server-log analysis to the next level by speeding and improving security forensics and providing a low cost platform to show compliance See how an enterprise security breach analysis and response might be performed with HDP.
With Hadoop, you can mine Twitter, Facebook and other social media conversations for sentiment data about you and your competition, and use it to make targeted, real-time, decisions.
