Syncsort’s Keith Kohl, in a guest post on Hortonworks’s blog (on an unrelated topic):
I heard a quote the other day that really made me think about the
experiences I hear from our customers and partners: 2013 was the year
companies tried to find budget for Hadoop, 2014 is the year they ARE
budgeting for Hadoop projects.
If I remember correctly, Gartner’s data doesn’t fully support this, but on the other hand I’m convinced that more projects using Hadoop will be rolled in production this year. The only questions to be answered:
- will this number grow significantly?
- what distributions will see most of the growth?
