mcknightcg

Relational databases are old technology, right? Thirty years is a long time for a technology foundation to be as active as relational databases, but, like NFL coaches, we must “tolerate them until we can replace them.” Are their replacements here? In this webinar, we say no. Databases have not sat around while Hadoop emerged. The Hadoop era generated a ton of interest and confusion, but is it still relevant as organizations are deploying cloud storage options like a kid in a candy store? We’ll discuss Hadoop’s continued potential relevance and the cloud storage option that seems vital. Use what when? This is a critical decision that can dictate two to five times additional work effort if it’s a bad fit.
