“Apache Drill coupled with the proper NoSQL data store opens up the opportunity for a single data source to be used for both transactional and analytical processing. There is no need to export or transform the data it into an application-specific or even a star schema format in order to load into a data warehouse. Time saved by not having to create software to serialize and deserialize the data into the data structures for any given language, coupled with simplified software testing and less code to maintain, add up to a BIG savings for any business.”
A background in Hadoop can serve as a valuable differentiator for professionals interested in building new areas of expertise in managing and analyzing data. To address this need, MapR launched earlier this year a free, comprehensive On-Demand Training program that can lead to becoming a certified Hadoop professional.
