Using SQL compliant applications and code to get the most out of Hadoop data
SQL has long been the most widely used language for big data analysis. The SQL-on-Hadoop ecosystem is loaded with both commercial and open source alternatives, each offering tools optimized for various use cases. Fledgling analytical engines are in incubation, but are they ready to become full-fledged members of your enterprise infrastructure? Are they ready to fly? In the real world, enterprises must understand their needs and select a SQL-on-Hadoop solution that addresses them. Points to consider: What are your analytics use cases-will a single user be working on data discovery or will multiple users perform daily analytics? Will you need to modify SQL to adjust to different deployment scenarios, or does a single solution exist for on-premises, Cloud, and Hadoop? Can a single solution support a variety of workloads from quick-hit dashboards to complex, resource-intensive, join-filled queries? Deriving value from open source innovation, while keeping your deployment options open, requires a field-proven and extensive SQL analytical database.
