Hadoop Predicted To Be More Disruptive than Linux
Abhishek Mehta is Managing Director for Big Data and Analytics for Bank of America, and serves as Executive in Residence at MIT Media Lab. SiliconAngle.tv founder John Furrier and Wikibon co-founder David Vellante interviewed him at Hadoop World last month. Abhishek sees Hadoop as being more disruptive than Linux, and leading to the formation of data factories. He also sees Hadoop giving programmers greater freedom to concentrate on creating algorithms that solve much larger, more complex problems than is possible today.
Here is a quote from the interview:
“So these data factories are going to emerge as the new drivers of innovation of a massive revolution that will change fundamentally how business models extract value, because data is going to be, is the core asset in a multitude of industries.”
At just under 30 minutes, this is a fascinating look into the future of Hadoop.
