Forrester regards Hadoop as the nucleus of the next-generation enterprise data warehouse (EDW) in the cloud. Hadoop implements the core features that are at the heart of most modern EDWs: cloud-facing architectures, massively parallel processing, in-database analytics, mixed workload management, and a hybrid storage layer. Application Development & Delivery (AD&D) and Business Process (BP) Professionals should regard today's Hadoop market as being driven by the need to reinvent the EDW for the new age of cloud-centric business models that require advanced, embedded analytics to be executed rapidly against Big Data.

In this Forrester teleconference, senior analyst James Kobielus presents the findings from the recently published Forrester Emerging Markets Wave™ for Enterprise Hadoop Solutions. Kobielus discusses how leading Hadoop solutions, from both incumbent EDW providers as well as startups — offer enterprise-grade distributions of Apache Hadoop, incorporating many of the core Hadoop subprojects with various proprietary revisions, extensions, tools to add functionality, performance, high availability, security, and manageability. He provides a comprehensive and in-depth discussion of various vendors' differentiation and strategies in this fast-moving, albeit immature, solution arena.
