The data lake continues to grow deeper and wider in the cloud era.Information-age.com, March 5 , 2018.
There have been tremendous developments in the big data space for the last 15 years. The early adopters of Apache Hadoop (Yahoo and Facebook) were among the first companies to build and manage Hadoop-based data lakes.The term data lake has now become an integral part of every enterprise data architecture but the emergence of cloud has changed the manner in which organizations look at data lakes. Data lakes will continue to grow in the cloud era but CIO’s and CDO’s will face 3 major challenges in their implementation -
- How to migrate their users ?
- How to survive with a hybrid infrastructure ?
- How to future proof their data platform?

Big data transformed the world. Now it’s getting down to business.SiliconAngle.com, March 6, 2018
Big data has transformed the world and continues to be work in progress but what form the big data market will take is still uncertain. Cloud computing providers are quickly capturing a large market share of enterprise business in the big data space while software suppliers are still struggling hard to find out a sustainable business model in the open source ecosystem. The pre-packaged big-data services market is also emerging quickly because of the maturing vendor ecosystem and increasing number of cloud based options that allow users focus more on applications instead of technology. Organizations that do not master big data fundamentals will be increasingly marginalized in the future.

Elephant in the room: Hortonworks CEO thinks Hadoop software will keep driving big data.Siliconangle.com, March 23, 2018.
Hortonworks has been struggling since 2011 to convince organizations to adopt a completely new open source big data framework like hadoop for new kind of analytical processing and develop a business selling software which customers can get elsewhere for free. However, now customers spend more than $100 million a year with Hortonworks and most of the spending is on Hadoop subscriptions. Hortonworks manages the entire lifecycle of the data from the point of origination to data at rest with hadoop. Hadoop has proven itself over the years as it’s driven several petabytes of data in many high-value big data use cases always outperforming other proprietary environments.

Making Hadoop Relatable Again. Datanami.com, March 26, 2018.
There has been a lot of debate on the future of the tiny toy elephant in the big data room in recent months. The techies at Splice Machine say that if Hadoop is made to look more like a relational database then users will make the best out of it. Splice Machine founder and CEO Monte Zweben told Datanami at the recent Strata Data Conference. “Our opinion is that you can take infrastructure that people understand, like relational database management systems, and run them directly on the data lake.” Splice Machine’s open source technology which turns Hadoop into distributed ACID compliant relational database is ready for release. Wells Fargo is the biggest paying customer , but it as well has several customers across healthcare, finance and other industries.
