EMC’s David Menninger and IBM’s James Kobielus argument pro and con the future of Hadoop. As you’d expect the company behind each of them has a lot to say about the topic. But if you get rid of the chaff, you’ll notice that the two pretty much agree: SQL married with Hadoop is the way of the future. One thing to keep in mind though: SQL and Hadoop does not mean getting rid of the different approaches of accessing Hadoop stored data (like Pig or pure MapReduce).
