Two strong opinions about the future of Hadoop and Enterprise Data warehouses from Ben Werther1 and Scott Gnau2:
Ben Wether: The proposition of the enterprise data warehouse seems tantalizing — unfying all the data in your enterprise into one perfect database.
Scott Gnau: The core argument really comes down to a couple of points: 1. Data Warehouses are too “rigid and inflexible”, and 2. The “community” will fix all of the limitations of Hadoop.
The way I see this debate is many fold:
- agile vs waterfall
- experimentation vs modeling
- discovery vs proven
- costs and speed of getting started
- efficiency and maintenance costs
