There is a market need to simplify big data technologies, and opportunities for this exist at all levels: technical, consumption, and so on. In 2016’s second half, there will be significant progress toward simplification. No matter who you are — a cluster operator, a security administrator, or a data analyst—we all want Hadoop and related big data technologies to be straightforward.
Here’s one more for Hadoop: In 2016, Hadoop will be used to deliver more mission critical workloads beyond the “web scale” companies. While companies like Yahoo, Spotify, and TrueCar all have built businesses which significantly leverage Hadoop, we will see Hadoop used by more traditional enterprises to extract valuable insights from the vast quantity of data under management and deliver net, new-mission, critical analytic applications that simply aren’t possible without Hadoop.
Security will grind its way to the top of your priorities list. Europe recently set strict regulations around data, which means that organizations will need to be strategic about how they’re tackling data security issues.
Rather than considering data privacy an afterthought, people will need to be proactive in explaining exactly how they will use the data and ensuring compliance with local and global laws. This is particularly true with the large increase in accessing data remotely (via mobile devices).
