If like me you follow Data Warehousing and Big Data developments you will have noticed some interesting research and commentary around the Hadoop and Big Data ecosystems of late. A couple of recent articles on Hadoop adoption by Gartner and Data Silos continue the trend. It seems that adoption has been much slower than anticipated by the industry, the key reasons being a shortage of skilled resource, the risk of creating yet more siloed data and crossing the chasm from science project to enterprise solution. Sound familiar?
If you’ve been in this space since the late 90’s early 2000’s then you’ll be getting a strong sense of Deja vu right about now. Back then the problems were similar even though the data was smaller.
