Derrick Harris over GigaOM lists 10 domains where Hadoop is used: online travel, mobile data, e-commerce, energy discovery, energy savings, infrastructure management, image processing, fraud detection, IT security, health care. Even if almost 2 years old, Mike Pearce’s 10 Problems that can use Hadoop is still a very good list of the types of challenges that Hadoop can help with.
But speaking of ways in which Hadoop is used, I remembered one friend of mine that kept teasing me: are there any other examples of Hadoop usage beyond log processing1? If you know any other Hadoop usages don’t be shy and leave a comment or drop me an email.
