Hadoop World was held 15-17 Oct in NYC. This post provides insights into some of the best technologies demonstrated there.
CTOvision has attended Hadoop World since the beginning. Attending has helped us better track tech trends and assess the potential business impacts of some of the greatest technologies created for the enterprise. It is also a great place to interact with business-focused architects, engineers, planners and of course CTOs.
One of the greatest things about the Strata Conference and Hadoop World is the ability to discover new technologies. It is also a great way to get updates on well known capability providers who continue to enhance their offerings. The things we learn will drive our assessments here at CTOvision and help us continue to create business focused analysis for our readers.
By our count there were over 135 technology vendors on the expo floor. It would be great to spend a full hour with every vendor. Let me see, 135 vendors at one hour each, that would be over three weeks of work assuming 40 hour work weeks. OK, that does not scale! With this post we can reduce that 135 hours to a few minutes. Please look this over and give us your thoughts. With that, we present:
