Big Data: Trend Toward Cloud-Native Self-Service Big Data Platforms

By Dick Weisinger

Of 400 IT and data professionals recently surveyed by Qubole about how they are using Big Data, 40 percent work in organizations that exceed 100 terabytes. Those organizations clearly can be classified as handling Big Data.

Highlights of Qubole’s report on Big Data include:

  • 73 percent of businesses are running Big Data analytics in the cloud
  • 61 percent of businesses say they plan to move their Big Data analytics to a self-service model
  • Hadoop is still a favorite Big Data tool, but it is no longer the only one.  Now there are tools like Spark for machine learning, Apache Flink for real-time streaming, Presto for SQL processing, and Tensorflow for deep learning.

 Ashish Thusoo, Apache Hive co-creator at Facebook, said that  “data is getting bigger. That hasn’t changed. What has changed is that analytics are becoming more and more advanced. In the past couple of years, the AI stuff has become all the rage.”
