@alan not really an independent position...

I agree with the missed opportunity to sell "economically harnessing constantly evolving data" as a business case. Although they did pitch on "data lakes"!

@alan
Not so much 'Hadoop has failed' as 'Hadoop has failed as a replacement for traditional data warehouses'.

I'll keep this in mind. My employer is investigating replacement options for a beautifully performant but incredibly expensive set of Vertica SQL clusters.

@mike I don't think that Hadoop would get cheaper, at least not for every use case

@alan
In our case our schemas change very rarely, so based on the article it seems like Hadoop might be a poor fit.

Of course I won't base my complete judgement just on that.
