Welcome to the era of "big data"
Serene Cloud Data Services
Enterprise Data is Growing Ever Larger

  • Enterprise data is growing from the terabyte to petabyte scale at a rapidly increasing rate
  • Growth is complicated by requirements to join structured data with larger unstructured data sets
  • Meta-data is rapidly growing based on the need to enrich structured and unstructured data using semantic technologies
Physical World is ERODING Old Solutions
  • Basic physics is dictating major changes in how we compute
  • Data Warehousing solutions can no longer count on buying a bigger machine to solve scale issues
  • Gains in processor speeds are slowing
  • Multi-core chips are replacing faster chips as path forward
  • Multi-core, multi-chip machines (8,16,32+ processors) are replacing single or dual chip machines
  • Software and underlying algorithms that performed well in the legacy environment will not scale without significant change
  • Solutions that once fit on a single machine must now scale to clusters, grids, and Clouds
Necessity Remains the Mother of Invention
  • Internet-scale companies (Google, Yahoo, etc.) sensed the need for Petabyte scale data analytics before smaller-scale organizations and were forced to innovate to mine data, serve results, and control cost
  • Google openly described its innovations in research papers describing its Google File System, Big Table data store, and MapReduce distributed data analysis algorithm
  • The Apache Foundation hosts open source implementations of these concepts in the Hadoop project and related projects
  • The Hadoop technologies have been adopted and sponsored by many companies including Yahoo!, Microsoft (Powerset), Facebook,, CNet, E-Harmony,, AdMob and by dozens of emerging internet startups
Opportunities Exist for Leaders to Seize
  • Leaders will gain advantage through better knowledge of their customers, vendors, pricing, and intellectual property
  • Your business leaders will find new opportunities to create business and/or save costs given more powerful analytics
  • Organizations that harness the power of Cloud-scale Data Analytics will improve faster and outpace their competitors
