Re: Too much focus on Hadoop?
No, it's really the case that there's nothing on an equal footing with Hadoop in the pantheon of emerging big-data technologies. There are a variety of NoSQL databases for different use cases and with different degrees of adoption. But only Hadoop is being widely adopted and supported by vendors as the centerpiece data lake/data hub for capturing and economically retaining enterprise data. There are many tools to analyze, report on, and predict against data, but you have to have the data platform in place to drive all those possibilities. That's the foundation.
