Alan Gardner reads a marketing material about Hadoop choices:
…this guide is specifically designed to be incorporated into your RFP when
it comes to evaluating Hadoop platforms. - Hadoop Buyer’s Guide, page 1
The Guide makes some bold promises right from page one. Not only will it
literally write your RFP, but it will also explain “… why selecting a
Hadoop platform is so vital”. Ostensibly the alternative, a Hadoop quantum
superposition, is difficult and costly to maintain at room temperature.
I have always wondered who’s the target audience of these pseudo-technical marketing materials. Moreover, I’ve always wondered if there’s a single person that made a decision based on such a thing1.
