Re: Too much focus on Hadoop?
David, I wouldn't sweat it. If you weren't covering data warehousing, data marts, business intelligence and analytics before this era, you probably won't be spending much time on data lakes/data hubs etc. going forward. The bottom line for business will be data-informed predictions and prescriptive recommendations. Hopefully these can be exposed as services so those building and consuming apps won't have to worry about the data-intensive work going on behind the scenes.

Data lake? I must be falling behind on my tech jargon.

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.

Too much focus on Hadoop?
Is Hadoop really that unique? Or is it part of a generation of new data technologies that are all vying for attention? I didn't think the focus on Hadoop was so unanimous as Forrester makes it out to be.
