Twitter Feed Fuels Real-time Hadoop with Storm and MapR at the Strata Conference

Twitter Feed Fuels Real-time Hadoop with Storm and MapR at the Strata Conference | Northern Ireland Whats On | Scoop.it

By streaming the #strataconf twitter hashtag directly into a cluster during the conference, MapR displayed two real-time tag clouds showing a word bubble with the most frequently used words in conference tweets and a user name cloud of top tweeters.  Watching the information change proved mesmerizing for some.

Vague Goals Seed Big Data Failures -- InformationWeek

Vague Goals Seed Big Data Failures -- InformationWeek | Northern Ireland Whats On | Scoop.it
IT staff survey finds big data projects are plagued by unclear business objectives and unrealistic expectations that Hadoop will solve all problems.
Ruan O'Tiarnaigh's insight:

One of the problems with the 'big data' gold rush is the 'big' bit.  Biting off more than you can chew, just because you now have a big knife and fork does not necessarily mean that digestion will occur.  Moreover, it is likely to result in a bad stomach ache as the undigested poorly masticated material languished about waiting for something to happen.

 

Yes, there are tremendous savings/business insights/benefits to be made, but you hear only of the 1% which are news worthy.  Failures are not promoted in the same way for obvious reasons.

 

A steady evolutionary rather than revolutionary approach is required in most cases to bring together bite sized pieces of data in workable systems where tweaking can be done to define/refine and sometimes totally redesign the system.

 

However the bubble is in full frenzy growth, so it will take another 12-18 months for some rationalisation to occur.
