Stacking the Open Source Odds For Success

In my spare time, I teach a fitness class that is offered in gyms around the world, and there are thousands of instructors worldwide. We all receive the same training, the same music, the same choreography. We are expected to deliver the same consistent experience to participants the world over. The expectation is that it is all THE SAME.

It’s Not All The Same

In reality, it’s not the same. New instructors are all capable of delivering a high quality, fun and safe experience but experienced instructors are able to deliver higher levels of coaching and results. For example, with 10 years of experience, I can tell you, in a blink of an eye, who’s getting a good workout and who’s headed for injury. In a split second, I can coach students on how to get back on track so they can reach their goals, faster, easier, safer. New instructors and new participants cannot do the same. This is the same reason professional sports teams have coaches – to achieve better results. The same reason olympic athletes uproot their lives to seek the best coaches and facilities possible – to achieve better results. Experience stacks the deck to success.

Experience Stacks the Deck For Success

When it comes to open source big data technology the same premise hold true. Hadoop is now 10 years old, and the people at Hortonworks have been with it from the very beginning. That means we have the experience gained through big data projects at over 1000 companies. And did you know –  the experience is not just a direct result of being the open source pioneers who invented Hadoop, but also being team leaders of big data projects beyond just Hortonworks as a company? That means we know first hand what it’s like to be you, to be the team getting buy-in and building out a big data project at your company.
