Hadoop has been shown to be a great platform for deriving insights from large quantities of data. With Hadoop, organizations can gather and analyze massive amounts of customer data to optimize processes to improve the customer experience, but there is a caveat. Too often, this optimization takes place as part of a series of manual processes—with analytical pipelines running in batches.
Looking at the business context in which these insights are being applied, you quickly find that the ability to act on real-time data is often equally relevant for making a real impact to organizations trying to be truly data driven. Steven Noels explains how to prime the Hadoop ecosystem for real-time data analysis and actionability, examining ways to evolve from batch processing to real-time stream-based processing.
