The beauty and challenge of Hadoop

Chad Carson describes in a short but persuasive way how Hadoop gets inside companies and the first challenges that follow:

We hear stories like this all the time, though sometimes the urgent email turns out to be from the CEO! These scenarios follow a common pattern in Hadoop adoption: Hadoop is such a flexible, scalable system that it’s easy for an engineer to quickly grab data that could never before be combined in one place, write some jobs, and get interesting results. Sometimes the results are so interesting that other teams start using them, and all of a sudden the company’s business depends on something that started as an experiment.
