With all the buzz in OOW about the big data machine, there was also a lot of non-sense flying around. I love it that the Oracle community is finally interested in Hadoop and NoSQL, but I hate it when people sound authoritative without having an actual clue. I’ve left a few presentations with smoke coming out of my ears.
The one that seems to be integral part of the Oracle Big Data Appliance message is that “Hadoop can only be used for basic ETL transformations. Real data analysis has to be done in Oracle and BI tools“. Unfortunately I’ve heard the same thing coming from IBM Netezza.
