1. Separate Systems for Real-Time and Historical Data


Many organizations have invested in Hadoop-based systems to process their historical data. But while Hadoop is very good at handling batch workloads, organizations generally find that they need additional tools to analyze real-time or near-real-time data. As a result, many are ending up with two separate systems for big data analytics — one fast and one slower.

In fact, in the Devo survey, 74% of those surveyed said they had separate systems for handling real-time and historical data. Of those, a full 97% said that they had experienced problems as a result of this arrangement.

To overcome this roadblock, organizations may want to consider a solution that can handle both real-time and historical data or a solution that can integrate data and analytics from the two separate systems.
