    Responses from the panel members were, for the most part what was expected. I wish there was someone in the panel from the user side with large scale Hadoop deployment.

    Unique experience to see such talented and market leading people going to classroom battle. If I could ask one more question it would be "What is the future look like for real-time analytics where we have million of data per second. Do tools like impala, drill, dremel up for it?"

      For real-time analytics, Spark and Storm are more relevant. Dremel is Google's proprietary technology on BigQuery, while Apache Drill is not available yet. Plus, these are all interactive query tools, which I don't deem the same as "real-time analytics" tools.

    The mention of "data governance" "west of Sacramento" was frank and insightful. On this front, Sentry and other similar components will alleviate data security concerns in big corporations, and help drive deeper enterprise adoption.

      I meant, "data governance" "EAST of Sacramento".

    I agree with Doug that Hadoop as an open-source platform now offers a variety of data processing options to technical users.

    On the other hand, the credit goes to Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR, Pivotal, and other vendors, for bringing Hadoop to the mainstream. The availability of commercial support (from these vendors) has been, and will continue to be, a deciding factor in enterprise adoption of Big Data.

    As many executives will tell you, "I can't just pick an open-source technology without knowing there is someone I can call."

    That's the business value they bring to Hadoop.

    That's how they help Hadoop thrive.

    The meetup was great on technical details, but light on business visions.

    One of the questions from the audience was why it was so hard to teach Hadoop to non-techies. The question itself speaks volumes about a huge skill gap, between techies who dream in binary numbers, and business or semi-technical people who can barely structure a three-line SQL select statement.

    In this aspect, the future belongs to technologies that help bridge that gap:
    1. The likes of Hive and Impala that leverage the existing pool of SQL-savvy business analysts.
    2. Search technologies such as Solr and Elasticsearch, which one day may allow anyone who can Google to search for information in a Hadoop cluster.
    3. Visualization tools (e.g., Kibana, Tableau) that communicate insights and trends to executives and a broader audience in an intuitive way.

    Now that's "Beyond MapReduce".
