re: 6 Big Data Advances: Some Might Be Giants
Hello Doug Henschen,
A month ago, I was at a crossroads. I was unhappy with my job, I no longer wanted to be living at home, I was tired of being three states away from my boyfriend, and I was sick of feeling unfulfilled.I loved the job, but the people turned out to be less than willing to train and accept me, so back home I went.

Great round-up of last week's Strata news Doug, thank you. We could not agree more re: SQL. At Causata, we believe SQL continues to be the industry-standard mechanism for breaking down data prisons. In our new v4 release, we've integrated a SQL Interface with our enterprise-class DMP and customer experience applications. We are utilizing Cloudera's Hadoop Distribution and management tools combined with our proprietary predictive analytic and machine learning algorithms. This combination of SQL, predictive analytics and machine learning will help marketers and analysts utilize their big data assets to create more meaningful and personalized customer offers.

Very insightful article Doug. One other open source technology to mention is HPCC Systems from LexisNexis, a data-intensive supercomputing platform for processing and solving big data analytical problems. Their open source Machine Learning Library and Matrix processing algorithms assist data scientists and developers with business intelligence and predictive analytics. Its integration with Hadoop, R and Pentaho extends further capabilities providing a complete solution for data ingestion, processing and delivery. In fact, a webhdfs implementation, (web based API provided by Hadoop) was recently released.

re: 6 Big Data Advances: Some Might Be Giants
Lots of competitors are heaping FUD on EMC's move, but it's one of the most talked-about announcements of the week. That says something. It may be true that EMC is not currently a factor as a Hadoop distributor. Even if EMC's fortunes don't change and it doen't become "the Hadoop distributor," this aggressive embrace of Hadoop might get more conservative players to take action. IBM? Oracle? are you really embracing the future or just holding it off?
