...knowing exactly where and how Hadoop can be leveraged within the modern enterprise data architecture is an open question. This report sheds light on that question,” said Jack Phillips CEO and Co-Founder of IIA.

The International Institute for Analytics (IIA) recently completed and published market research on the current state of Hadoop in the enterprise. This report, authored by IIA and sponsored by SAS, examines Hadoop adoption rates, market size and growth, and the most common use cases of Hadoop today.

“As business plans increasingly call for reliance on Big Data, users are becoming more proficient at making use of data through analytical tools. Hadoop has emerged as a popular technology for consideration, but knowing exactly where and how Hadoop can be leveraged within the modern enterprise data architecture is an open question. This report sheds light on that question,” said Jack Phillips CEO and Co-Founder of IIA.

The report uncovers that while the attraction of the low-cost, high-availability storage and processing power of Hadoop has drawn many organizations to consider this new technology, it may not be a panacea for every Big Data initiative. Even its most enthusiastic champions highlight some challenges that could be slowing down Hadoop’s broader adoption.

A key finding from the study is that many more organizations view Hadoop as playing a strategic role in their future growth, but are still struggling to implement due to complexity, skills gaps, unfriendly analytics interfaces for business users, and the decision to implement a commercial version or to manage it themselves.

The report also presents key experiences drawn from qualitative interviews conducted among organizations in various stages of Hadoop deployment and concludes with a set of recommendations for organizations considering Hadoop.
