Syncsort’s New eBook Warns of 5 Pitfalls to Avoid with Hadoop

Helps Customers Identify Critical Hadoop Gaps and Provides Best Practices to Overcome Them

WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J – April 09, 2013

Syncsort, a global leader in Big Data integration solutions, today announced the availability of a free eBook created to help customers maximize the potential of Hadoop by identifying and overcoming critical gaps in Hadoop’s data integration capabilities.

ETL is emerging as the key use case for Hadoop implementations, but Hadoop still lacks a number of core data integration capabilities required for successful ETL deployments. The eBook provides specific recommendations for filling the gaps and choosing complementary data integration tools to make it easier for a broad audience to develop and maintain ETL jobs in Hadoop.

“Hadoop ETL requires organizations to acquire a completely new set of advanced programming skills that are expensive and difficult to find,” said Josh Rogers, senior vice president, data integration business, Syncsort. “To overcome this challenge, it’s critical to choose the right tools to complement Hadoop and leverages skills that organizations already possess.”

The eBook is published on the heels of Syncsort’s announcement of its latest contribution to the Apache Hadoop community, a new feature that strengthens Apache Hadoop’s Big Data integration & ETL capabilities and is committed to Apache Hadoop 2.0.3-alpha.
