Big data brings breast cancer research forwards by 'decades'. ScienceDaily.com, February 1, 2017.
Researchers analysed data of more than 28000 different genes and millions of images of 300,000 breast cancer cells and found that any cell shape changes caused by physical pressures on the tumours are converted into gene activity. From this big data analysis , scientists created a “Map” by linking the shape of the breast cancer cells to the genes turned on and off. They matched it with the real disease outcomes that will help doctors select treatments.

BlueTalon Enables Secure Use of Hadoop Web Interface by Big Data Teams. Globenewswire.com, February 14, 2017.
It is estimated that 8000-10000 hadoop installations are at risk across the world including hadoop deployments in the cloud. Hackers target hadoop ransomware trying to find hadoop instances where the web interface to HDFS is left to unsecure with out of the box configuration.Blue Talon’s new turnkey offering named SecureAccess for WebHDFS will help big data project teams block hackers from making the most of hadoop security weakness. This new offering will enforce the use of encryption and authentication methods on the web interface to HDFS.

IBM, Hortonworks tackle big data in Hadoop analytics partnership. CBROnline.com, February 14, 2017.
Two Tech giants, Hortonworks and IBM have partnered to enable IBM clients run hadoop analytics directly on IBM storage without requiring a separate analytic storage.IBM’s enterprise storage will be paired with Hortonworks analytics application so that clients can opt for either centralized or distributed deployments. This partnership will reduce the overhead of copying data from enterprise storage to a separate analytics platform so that data based queries can be executed quickly.

Hadoop finds a happier home in the cloud.InfoWorld.com, February 15, 2017.
According to a Gartner report , Hadoop distributions spending in 2016 reached $800 million, 40% increase from 2015. However, the spending merely has only 14% of companies actually reporting hadoop deployments i.e. a slight increase from 2015’s 10%. The reason for this is that many organizations prefer to deploy hadoop in the cloud as there are better chances of success. Increased number of organizations are moving to hadoop in the cloud because of its utter complexity to make hadoop work.

ANZ bank to move 'quaint' data ponds into single Hadoop-based data lake.Zdnet.com, February 21, 2017
Australia and New Zealand Banking Group is working on a project to build an enterprise wide data lake so that it can capitalise on the most strategic assets. The bank has small ponds of data spread across various departments and the information in these little ponds is accessible only to people working on specific projects. Thus, ANZ bank plans to aggregate all the data they have into a single hadoop-based data lake so that they can get away with the concept of data warehouses.
