Trial Worth pursuing. It is important to understand how to build up this capability. Enterprises should try this technology on a project that can handle the risk.
We observe organizations that have piloted Hadoop successfully starting to consolidate their Hadoop infrastructure services into a centralized, managed platform before rolling it out across the enterprise.These Hadoop as a service platforms are characterized by the control tier that interfaces with and coordinates among different core Hadoop infrastructure components. The capabilities of the platform are usually exposed via higher-level abstractions to the enterprise. Such a managed platform gives organizations the ability to deploy processes, infrastructure and datasets in a fairly consistent way across the organization. These services are built in private data centers and public cloud infrastructure.
