What interests you in working with Big Data?

Going big -- the faculty information system doesn't have real big data requirements today, but we're moving in that direction as we harvest publications, grants, research interest and related data for CU's faculty and researchers from a variety of open data and commercial data resources in a variety of formats.

Have you used Hadoop before?


Which tools in the Hadoop ecosystem have you used? (Hive, Pig, Flume, etc ...)
