Remote DBA Experts on What Hadoop Means to the Database Management Landscape

Big data hadoop

The big data phenomenon has brought with it numerous challenges to the data management landscape. As the government, businesses and other organizations continue rapidly generating data, the need to collect and analyze the same has become more urgent. Big data is not only about volume but also how this data is used to improve productivity in any setting.

The traditional database management systems have become overwhelmed as more data becomes available and sadly, this has resulted in reduced analysis of available data. If for instance a healthcare organization was to leverage big data through a capable database, it would be easier to cut costs, predict disease outbreaks and also make the entire healthcare more efficient.

Enter Hadoop

This is where Hadoop comes in handy. This is an open source storage platform that is gradually changing big data management. It provides an excellent data management solution for big data. Initially, it was mostly used by large web 2.0 companies but it is now being adopted by all types of businesses. The framework supports scaling out to process large data sets.
The importance of Hadoop basically lies in its ability to help businesses make decisions based on a large set of data and other variables. As a business owner, you are able to get a more comprehensive view of your target audience without having to use multiple analyses. If you are a website owner or a database manager, it is important to get insight on Hadoop in order to leverage its capabilities.
