JavaScript Console and Excel Coming to Hadoop

Eric Baldeschwieler about the Hortonworks and Microsoft partnership for bringing Apache Hadoop to Windows:

What makes this announcement significant is that Microsoft is opening up Apache Hadoop to literally millions of new users. There are millions of JavaScript developers that can now leverage the power of Apache Hadoop. There are many more millions of Excel and PowerPivot users that can also now derive value from Apache Hadoop using software is that already very familiar to them. Simply put, these contributions by Microsoft will extend Apache Hadoop to the most prolific data analysis tools in the world.

Me, back in January, after taking a look at Hadoop on Windows Azure:

The JavaScript console and the visualization support are very nice additions on top of the managed Hadoop on Azure.

Feature checklists are still important, but technology adoption depends more and more on the user experience. Think of getting up to speed as being the first impression someone gets of a new technology.

Think of integration with familiar tools and frameworks as a huge adoption accelerator.
