Oracle's new big data tool won't cover all the analysis bases, but it will enable SQL-savvy professionals to query Hadoop and NoSQL sources.

Oracle Big Data SQL is not a SQL-on-Hadoop option, it's a way to SQL query Oracle Database, Hadoop, and NoSQL sources simultaneously.

SQL and the post-MapReduce Era
There has been a lot said about moving on from MapReduce recently, but I think the big data world needs a clearer understanding of the capabilities of MapReduce, MapReduce 2.0 on YARN and alternatives. As for the Oracle Big Data SQL alternative, Oracle offered the example of correlating Twitter data with customer information, as described above, but I'm hoping to hear about many more examples of what's possible at Oracle Open World (which will, no doubt, be when this feature sees it's general release).

Re: Well in
The oracle data tool will not be able to cover the entire analyses basis but the comforting thing is that its advantages are more than the disadvantages. The other good thing is that it will be able to open up access to Hadoop data in the third quarter. The fascinating thing is that it will enable the oracle data shops to be able to use bigger data with the help and their expertise. The data storage feature will also be increased meaning that the user will be able to get more space to save their data. The oracle team will only need to elaborate more on the capabilities of the map reduce and the yarn too, Plus their capabilities.
