News on Hadoop-March 2017
The cloud is disrupting Hadoop. Zdnet.com, March 6, 2017
Forrester estimates that organizations will spend $800 million in hadoop and its related services in 2017. The major force exerting pressure on Hadoop is cloud.With firms no longer showing interest in dangling with hadoop’s on-premise complexity, organizations are more keen on shifting their hadoop stacks to the public cloud.This implies that the revenue of hadoop vendors will see a drastic shift from on-premise to the cloud. Just like Hadoop is not designed for the cloud, it is not meant for doing matrix math that deep learning requires. According to Forrester , Hadoop has a strong future and will witness strong growth in the next 2 to 3 years.

Dr. Elephant Steps Up to Cure Hadoop Cluster Pains. Datanami.com, March 7, 2017.
At LinkedIn , distributed clusters run backend metrics , power experiments, and drive production data products which are used by millions of people.Multiple users interact with hadoop through dozens of stacks every day and there are multiple data flows which move data.LinkedIn created Dr. Elephant to tackle with the hassle of a tidy hadoop cluster.Dr. Elephant helped developers identify poorly executing jobs and find out the root cause of the problem.Dr. Elephant also provides hadoop cluster users with recommendations on how to enhance the performance of a hadoop job without affecting the overall efficiency of the hadoop cluster. Pepperdata, one of its commercial vendor announced the release of a new product based on Dr. Elephant known as Application Profiler. Application Profiler along with Dr. Elephant will help hadoop shops boost their DevOps cycles.

Big Data Tool For Trump’s Big Government Immigration Plans. Cato.org, March 9, 2017
With Trump enforcing immigration laws, big data is all set to play a vital role in the immigration policy agenda.Palantir Technologies earlier this month designed an intelligence system known as Investigative Case Management (ICM) which will concern all US citizens who value civil liberties. ICM will provide ICE agents access to large amounts of data to help immigration officials discover targets and after that create and administer cases against them.

Monetizing big data with Hadoop as a Service: SAP’s story.SiliconAngle.com, March 15, 2017.
SAP scooped up Altiscale in 2016 to add scalability and performance to its BDaaS solution. Altiscale brought in a cloud infrastructure to SAP that provides both Hadoop and Spark as a service.This has helped reduce the complexity and help customers focus on these technologies to extract business value instead of having to focus on operating them and this is what customers want “Hadoop as a Service”. SAP is now opening a data centre in Europe to fill the increasing demand for Hadoop as a service. The BDaaS includes Hive, Hadoop and Spark. It runs Hadoop HDFS and YARN from Hadoop and integrated Hive and Spark as a service.

How Big Data is Being Mobilized in the Fight Against Leukemia. Dddmag.com, March 27, 2017.
Chronic Myeloid Leukaemia is incurable and lifelong treatment requires patients to live with side effects with chances of drug resistance arising. As the number of CML patients increase, there is strain on improving health services. Bloodwise and Scottish Cancer Foundation have created LEUKomics which brings together a CML gene expression data from various specialised laboratories across the globe along with the data from University of Glasgow. The intention is to eliminate all the bottlenecks around big data analysis in CML. Manual quality checks are performed and computational processing is done to extract information on gene expression from each dataset. This will help them interpret data that was not easily accessible previously to clinicians or academics without being trained in specialised computational approaches.
