It is an interesting time to be in enterprise IT. There's the old world and the new world. There's the SAN storage + proprietary database world and there's the Cloud + open data formats world. In the new world, you own your data and can process it any way you like, simultaneously. Hadoop with Spark, Storm, Flink, Phoenix, Presto, Hive, Impala or straight MapReduce - you choose. Modern software running in the cloud, on commodity hardware, slowly eats the legacy IT world. However, the old world is not going away - any time soon. We've been around for long enough to know that. Enterprise data continues to be born in many different old world systems, where it will graduate to the new world for modern analytics and processing.
