Week in Review: Patterns, Glue and Moonshots

The end of another action-packed week and just before we all head off for the weekend then let’s have a recap on the conversations from this week – we hope you’re enjoying them.

We’re delighted by the response to our Hadoop Patterns of Use whitepaper and presentation – that really seems to have struck a chord with everyone thinking about what Hadoop can really do for their business. You can see that content just below here – an excellent read for the journey home.

Also popular was the slides from one of our resident data scientists, Ofer Mendelevitch, who had 4 great reasons to use Hadoop for data science. He’ll be mining for more right now. Another article we liked from Stratconf explained the importance of imagination in data science.

Mid-week, we turned our attention to the awesomeness of HCatalog and spent a little time geeking out on the capabilities it provides as the glue for all your data. We also got a little bit excited about the HP Moonshot announcement – we love the idea of an appliance that can enable 1800 nodes in a single chassis. Wow.

But wait there’s more… Justin published the 2nd in a series of guest posts from Charles Boicey on a real-life implementation of Hadoop to improve patient monitoring in healthcare. And sneaking in at the end of last week we looked at the reality of integrating SAP and Hortonworks Data Platform.

And technically, we saw some interesting articles:

Enough to keep you going until next week? OK, one more then… Cheryle offered some great advice on things you can do in the Sandbox to boost your skills. Go on, get stuck in.
