SQL on Hadoop sees success

Sponsored by SearchDataManagement

Some things just go well together, whether they were originally intended to or not. Peanut butter and jelly were probably invented by different people, but now they are most often found squished together between two slices of bread. Without SQL, Hadoop was finding itself backed into a corner. But SQL-on-Hadoop tools are helping the platform reach a greater purpose.

In this handbook, case studies and experts illustrate why SQL on Hadoop is useful when dealing with business data. Jack Vaughan, news and site editor for SearchDataManagement, writes about companies that have benefited from SQL-on-Hadoop implementations. In another article, Vaughan recounts the energy around SQL-on-Hadoop tools at the 2015 Hadoop Summit. And to close, consultant David Teich discusses how SQL-on-Hadoop software can help analyze data.
