A summary of a survey run by Ventana about Hadoop:
The research findings indicate that Hadoop is already being used in one third of big data environments and evaluated in nearly another fifth. The research also found that Hadoop is additive to existing technologies according to almost two thirds of research participants.
Topping the lists of benefits in Hadoop adoption are newly found capabilities — 87% of organizations using Hadoop report being able to do new things with big data versus 52% of other organizations, 94% perform new types of analytics on large volumes of data, 88% analyze data at greater level of detail. These research statistics already validate the arrival of Hadoop as a key component of organization’s information management efforts. However, challenges remain with over half the organizations indicating some level of dissatisfaction with Hadoop.
Pretty interesting numbers.
