Big Data has finally produced results for my team at work. Other parts of the business have been working on transforming our company wide data lake into a structured, post business rule cache in Hadoop. Our team is now able to do terabyte scale transformations on this dataset in hours instead of weeks. We’re also able to delete code and reimagine processes. It’s been a long time in coming but we’re finally there. Thanks to the open source community for delivering the goods: Hadoop, Cassandra, and MongoDB.
