Hadoop as a service
NOT ON THE CURRENT EDITION
This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the RadarUnderstand more

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.
