A1: #bigdatamgmt Yet another factor preventing achieving goals via #bigdata is having insufficient analytic app devel skills.

A1: #bigdatamgmt Another factor preventing achieving #bigdata-enabled biz goals is having DB that won't scale to requisite "Vs".

A1: #bigdatamgmt The first thing stopping any user from achieving goals with #bigdata or any other IT investment is lack of clear goals.

A3: There's still an educational issue for #hadoop to show #SMBs esp how they can use it. Not just for big boy enterprise. #bigdatamgmt

A3: #bigdatamgmt Within today's innovative #bigdata arena, in-memory, streaming, graph dbs (eg Spark, Streams) hit sweetspots beyond #Hadoop

A3: #bigdatamgmt Within the context of the hybrid #bigdata cloud, #Hadoop's sweet-spot use cases need to emphasized. Not optimal for all.

A3: #bigdatamgmt #Bigdata universe is increasingly hybrid: #Hadoop has its core use cases, #NoSQL has its, in-memory its, RDBMS its, etc

A3: #bigdatamgmt #Hadoop doesn't "need" anything. Users do the needing. Their needs are 4 faster, more efficient, cheaper #bigdata solutions

A2 That said, YARN enables #Hadoop to support multiple application types and data processing capabilities, big step forward #bigdatamgmt

A2: #hadoop 2.X evolves to the "data grid" concept Host data once and re-use many based on business reqt and soln fit #bigdatamgmt

A2: #bigdatamgmt What YARN enables is incorporation of R and other programming languages/paradigms beyond #MapReduce into #Hadoop projects

A2: #bigdatamgmt For starters, #MapReduce & HDFS in #Hadoop 1.0 will remain core infra for many #bigdata apps involving hybrid architecture

A2: #bigdatamgmt YARN #Hadoop 2.0 not obsoleting #MapReduce Hdp 1.0. Evolving it into more flexibl model/execution plat 4 #bigdata analytics

A1: #bigdatamgmt In terms of th maturity of enterprise IT skills & practices surrounding #Hadoop, many users are short-staffed/bootstrapping

A1: #bigdatamgmt In terms of commercial apps, dev tools, mgmt tools, appliances, etc., #Hadoop has a rich, vibrant marketplace. #IBM et al

A1: #bigdatamgmt In terms of #Hadoop functionality, Apache open-source distro is full in-db analytics MPP for #bigdata cognitive computing

A1: #bigdatamgmt #Hadoop has achieved significant enterprise adoption, hence "mature" in that respect. Functionality-wise, on maturity cusp

When we say "the cloud is down," does that mean we've only got a foggy notion why?

My biggest fear in writing the quick-hits is not running out of ideas. My biggest fear is repeating myself while replowing the same ground.

Let's see. Did the quick-hit I wrote late last night make any f'ing sense at all? Mmmm.mmmm..mmmm. Whew! It logically flows. Only one typo.

I actually do hold onto every biz card that people give me. All go into largely obsolete diskette drawer in my home office. There they sit.

Getting ready to do the CSCC event in Boston today. By "getting ready," I mean "getting up." Already ready.
