Cloudera, Hadoop and the changing role of data in business

We’ve all heard about the explosion of data in business. While this is true, the most impactful trend is the changing role of data in same businesses.

Most of the key database systems developed over the last two decades were built with financial data in mind. Invoice and inventory data being the most obvious.

While that type of financial and operations data is still crucial. New age firms like Uber & Airbnb are collecting data in totally new areas and on a much bigger scale.

This richer data is often customer centric, like website navigation data, purchasing habits, app location data, social media, etc.

The traditional hardware, software and the methodologies are too expensive and inefficient when approaching this new data set, especially at large scale.

What has evolved is a second tier of data. For this very granular data that by itself isn’t valuable but when summarised up is crucial to customer experience and business planning.
