Forrester’s Hadoop Predictions 2015

Hadoop adoption and innovation is moving forward at a fast pace, playing a critical role in today's data economy. But, how fast and far will Hadoop go heading into 2015? 
 
Prediction 1: Hadooponomics makes enterprise adoption mandatory. The jury is in. Hadoop has been found not guilty of being an over-hyped open source platform. Hadoop has proven real enterprise value in any number of use cases including data lakes, traditional and advanced analytics, ETL-less ETL, active-archive, and even some transactional applications. All these use cases are powered by what Forrester calls “Hadooponomics” — its ability to linearly scale both data storage and data processing.
 
What it means: The remaining minority of dazed and confused CIOs will make Hadoop a priority for 2015.

Prediction 4: The Hadoop skills shortage will disappear. Hadoop is not that hard to understand. It is a file system, albeit distributed, and it is a computing platform, albeit distributed. The APIs are Java. What’s the big deal? Digging in to a new open source platform and learning the APIs is nothing new to enterprise Java application developers. They have to do it continuously to keep up and keep their résumés fresh. Hadoop is no different. The shortage of Hadoop skills will quickly disappear as enterprises turn to their existing application development teams to implement projects such as filling data lakes and developing MapReduce jobs using Java. Let’s not forget about the operations skills needed to maintain a Hadoop cluster. Same thing. DevOps continuously deal with a complex heterogeneous environment. For those familiar with business intelligence, SQL on Hadoop will open the door to familiar access to their data. And while experienced technology management professionals take the bull by the horns, the open source community and commercial vendors are building better tools to make using Hadoop easier to use for everyone.
 
What it means: CIOs won’t have to hire high-priced Hadoop consultants to get projects done. Hadoop projects will get done faster because the enterprise’s very own application developers and operations professionals know the data, the integration points, the applications, and the business challenges. Additional skills for more complicated applications, such as predictive analytics running inside Hadoop, can be built when needed over time.

Hadoop is anything but easy.

Hadoop is anything but easy. It is not only the HDFS but the MapReduce paradigm. Using Hadoop ecosystem affectively is a rare skill. Writing Map Reduce routines that acomplish certain data aggregation results is more of an art right now and a skill only a few posess.... Frankly your analysis is worthless

Hadoop Predication 2015

One of the more surprising developments expects is that the Hadoop skills shortage, which has been so well documented in the last couple of years, will evaporate in 2015. Hadoop projects will get done faster because the enterprise’s very own application developers and operations professionals know the data, the integration points, the applications and the business challenges. Key to this will be SQL on Hadoop, Gualtieri said, as it will open the door to familiar access with Hadoop data. Meanwhile, commercial vendors and the open-source community alike are both building better tools to make Hadoop easier for everyone to use.
