    Biggest Beneficiaries of Hadoop

    Slightly more than half the respondents (52%) view marketing and sales as the biggest beneficiaries from big data, followed by operations (35%).
 

Hadoop is already fairly widespread, with internal IT organizations driving much of that adoption, according to a survey of more than 2,100 business users. Most organizations are still in the early stages of Hadoop use in a production environment, according to the survey conducted by AtScale (a provider of business intelligence (BI) software that works natively on Hadoop), in partnership with Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR Technologies and Tableau. For solution providers, this opportunity is twofold. The majority of organizations polled report a significant skills shortage when it comes to Hadoop, providing a new opportunity around consulting and managed services expertise. Meanwhile, in terms of reselling IT infrastructure to support Hadoop, the majority of the organizations have deployed clusters that consist of 25 nodes or less. Six in 10 respondents said they view Hadoop as either partially or entirely replacing their enterprise data warehouse, which has profound implications for companies such as Oracle, IBM and Teradata. Perhaps most telling is that nearly half (49%) report they are already attaining tangible business value from their Hadoop investments. Here's a look at key takeaways from the study.
