In this special technology white paper, Leveraging Big Data to Gain a Competitive Advantage Across a Range of Industries, you’ll see how organizations around the world are turning to the Hadoop data collection, management and analysis platform to optimize their efforts to extract value from big data. Hadoop offers two important services: store any kind of data from any source, inexpensively and at very large scale, and perform sophisticated analysis of that data easily and quickly. This value proposition makes the open source Hadoop ecosystem attractive for diverse use cases across a wide range of industries.
This business-oriented white paper summarizes the wide-ranging benefits of the Hadoop platform, highlights common data processing use cases and explores examples of specific use cases in vertical industries. The information presented draws on the collective experiences of three leaders in the use of Hadoop technologies—Dell and its partners Cloudera and Intel.
The white paper includes the following big data solution topics:
- The Hadoop Platform
- Addressing common data processing challenges
- Use cases in diverse industries: financial services, government, healthcare, manufacturing, oil-and-gas exploration and energy utilities, retail, telecommunications, universities and research institutions, web 2.0 and technology
- Make your Hadoop journey with Dell and Intel
Ultimately, Dell, together with Cloudera and Intel, has what it takes to help you gain hands-on experience with Hadoop through a proof of concept and then take your solution into a full production environment—guided by proven reference architectures, enabled by package solutions and supported by the Dell Professional Services organization.
