Re: Kylin components use other parts of Hadoop project
What I really like about big data is the amazing insight that one can cull from data sources. We have the technology these days, it's just companies like eBay have to find tools to process them and gather insight. Hadoop has had a big part in that over the past few years.

Re: Kylin components use other parts of Hadoop project
Kylin can inform manufacturers about the quantity to produce and the timing to produce. If it has not already been implemented, I have a feeling that Kylin might also be utilized in the future to inform investors about the companies that would be a good investment -- from algorithmic trading to real-time algorithmic investment.

Re: Kylin components use other parts of Hadoop project
It's a trend for big internet giants to have self-cooked big data tools. The data is a gold mine and it depends how much value you can dig out from it.

Kylin components use other parts of Hadoop project
Kylin can read data from Hive, run sorting and pre-calculations against the data via MapReduce and store data as cubes in HBase, using Zookeeper to coordinate jobs, according to some of the project's documentation. It has a Metadata Manager component, a REST Server, an ODBC Driver, a Query Engine and a Storage Engine.
