Hadoop Silos Need Integration

Brain McKenna for ComputerWeekly:

Steve Shelton, head of data services at consultancy Detica, part of BAE Systems, said Hadoop silos have become part of the enterprise IT landscape, both in the private and public sectors.


He said Detica had seen complaints about Hadoop silos, and these were created by people going through a proof-of-concept phase, setting up a Hadoop cluster quickly and building a team.

What’s the definition of a data silo?

According to Wikipedia:

An information silo is a management system incapable of reciprocal operation with other, related information systems. For example, a bank’s management system is considered a silo if it cannot exchange information with other related systems within its own organization, or with the management systems of its customers, vendors, or business partners.

I could enumerate again the tools that provide bidirectional access to data in Hadoop clusters, but to get a better idea check out these links:

According to the analysis done by Datameer the collaboration in the Hadoop space seems pretty healthy too:

So, again: what’s the definition of a Hadoop silo?
