What is Big Data Hadoop?

Big data Hadoop delivers data-driven information for your business or organization. Big data, Hadoop and data wrangling from Trifacta solves the user gap and puts data in the hands of the user.

Today the words “big data” and “Hadoop” are appearing more and more synonymously. And why is that? Hadoop, is an open source framework used for data storage and data processing. Hadoop has afforded businesses and organizations major new gains in flexibility and cost savings. Big data stored in Hadoop can land in its native environments, allowing organizations to better connect the dots between structured and unstructured data formats.

What does Big Data, Hadoop mean for the Business?

In recent years, many leading organizations have begun adopting Hadoop. Big data stored in Hadoop is rarely accessible by those who need it most: the business users. When a data analyst’s work revolves around Excel, business intelligence tools and business insights, “big data Hadoop” typically isn’t in their vocabulary therefore the data is not available to them.

This is a huge problem within organizations, since it’s difficult for the business to tap into the benefits that big data Hadoop affords: scalability across the organization and the ability to leverage new, unstructured data sources. And for IT organizations placing a big bet on big data, Hadoop, and the future of their data-driven organization, this continues to be a huge problem.
