Hadoop Use Cases: Speeding Up Data Workloads

Abstract :

One reason organizations struggle to achieve value from big data is lack of a compelling business use case. Gain insight into practical uses for Hadoop by looking at specific ways big data technologies can be leveraged to enable business analytics by speeding up data workloads: speed up ETL processing; speed up mainframe batch processing; speed up pricing optimization, fraud detection, network analytics, and more. These solutions - developed within retail, finance and healthcare industries - can be used by any organization facing similar data processing challenges to identify their own big data use case and create business value.
