Get best practices for deploying Hadoop in a traditional enterprise-IT environment
Hadoop-based solutions are quickly moving in on the traditional systems that still dominate enterprise IT. But the most successful Hadoop organizations plan and execute these new implementations with a sharp focus on the IT environment they already have.
This paper, authored by Gigaom analyst Paul Miller, lays out a practical, easy-to-follow approach to introducing Hadoop into a traditional enterprise-IT environment, including the best use cases for early experimentation and adoption, and how to move toward mainstream deployments as part of a sustainable enterprise-IT stack.
Miller addresses the questions fundamental to every successful Hadoop project, including:
- Where does Hadoop make sense?
- What are the barriers to adoption in the enterprise?
- What are the risks of adoption in the enterprise (and how to mitigate them)?
- How to build upon early success for even bigger benefits?
