While Gartner finds that 64 percent of enterprises are investing in big data, a similar chunk (60 percent) don't have a clue as to what to do with their data.</p> <p>The real problem isn't one of technology, but of process. The key to succeeding with big data, as in all serious IT investments, is iteration. It's not about Hadoop, NoSQL, Splunk, or any particular vendor or technology. It's about iteration.</p> Big Data Big Data Hadoop Thu, 24 Jul 2014 10:00:00 +0000 InfoWorld Tech Watch 246903 at http://www.infoworld.com Review: Apache Hive brings real-time queries to Hadoop http://www.infoworld.com/d/big-data/review-apache-hive-brings-real-time-queries-hadoop-246607?source=rss_hadoop <p>Apache Hive is a tool built on top of Hadoop for analyzing large, unstructured data sets using a SQL-like syntax, thus making Hadoop accessible to legions of existing BI and corporate analytics researchers.
