About this paper
It's easy to become overwhelmed by the growing volume, velocity and variety of big data. While it can be the key to uncovering profitable insights and answering complex questions, many organizations struggle to store, manage and analyze this valuable resource. The missing piece to the big data puzzle could be Hadoop, a computing framework that allows for distributed processing of large data sets across multiple computers using simple programming models. This paper summarizes a webinar in which three SAS experts discuss how Hadoop works and why it's important, how Hadoop can address big data challenges, and how advanced analytics can enhance and streamline Hadoop.
