Hadoop Will Power Real-Time Tailored Applications
The coming year will see an explosion of interactive applications—Web apps, mobile apps, social apps—built on the Hadoop platform and interacting with people in real-time, says Monte Zweben, co-founder and CEO of Splice Machine, provider of a real-time SQL-on-Hadoop database.
"2014 is going to bring the real-time big data application platform," Zweben says. "You're not just going to be analyzing yesterday's data today. You're going to be analyzing data from five minutes ago, one minute ago. You're going to have interactive applications that make decisions in real-time."
