Re: SQL is one thing, not everything.
SQL is important but definitely not everything, even not the core in big data era. The real purpose of big data is its analysis capability. We need to coorelate unstrctured data and draw meaningful conclusion from it. So SQL is a method, facility but not the goal by itself.

SQL is one thing, not everything.
SQL is important, and that's why there have been so many announcements, but remember that the first and highest purpose for Hadoop is not to be an alternative platform for the same old structured data anlayses. Hadoop's higher use is correlating structured and unstructured data and finding new insights in variable data such as clickstreams, log files, mobile data, social data and more. YARN will enable multiple modes of analysis. Spark, for example, is aspiring to support machine learning, streaming analysis, SQL and other ways of analyzing data. So SQL is one thing, but not everything.
