Hadoop Days Are Counted, Still Some Are Not Aware of That

VinoEno is part of an emerging trend of companies large and small deploying recommendation engines that are built on Hadoop or other MapReduce analytics platforms. Foursquare recently made headlines when it included a recommendation engine in the latest version of its eponymous location-sharing mobile app. The company uses Hadoop to store and analyze millions of user check-ins. VinoEno’s mobile app VinSpin can recommend a new wine to try. Now Foursquare can recommend where to have a glass.

I’m really not sure why they are still using Hadoop when it’s so passé.
