Hadoop

Enterprises have long realized the value of converging and analyzing business, user, and machine activities across diverse organizational functions and systems. However, this has only been partially leveraged, thereby limiting its applicability to more tangible, function-specific analytics or purpose-specific reporting. This approach has worked acceptably so far, and traditional reporting and analytics systems have served the purpose reasonably well. However, as businesses enter today’s highly complex, competitive, and rapidly evolving marketplace, the need for cross-domain analysis and decision-support systems operating across converged data sources and cutting across extremely large and varied data sets in near-real time has become an imperative in an increasingly growing number of scenarios. Traditional technologies are not designed to handle well and if applied, present a weak cost-value proposition, posing a challenge to businesses.

Hadoop and a supporting ecosystem of complementing technologies, building blocks, and implementation frameworks today provide one of the most powerful, mature, and compelling answers to problems in this domain. The true power of the Hadoop stack lies in it being a complete solution, covering the entire life cycle needs of applications including data collection, web-scale storage, data curation and organization, massively parallel processing, statistical and analytical tooling, integrative, visualization, and reporting tooling. All of this is made possible at costs that make sense in today’s highly constrained economic environment.

As a specialized solution and consulting services provider, KPD Solutions’s expertise covers an array of relevant tooling, frameworks, and building blocks. Our pre-verified and gaps-addressed core Hadoop frameworks remove the guesswork out of the implementation. Our HPC-grade Hadoop cluster serves as a prototyping sandbox, so you can take the logistics for granted and focus on the core business problem, experiment with the technology, and develop an appreciation for its value to business quickly and definitively before you go all out . And, when you are ready to move on, our solution and deployment expertise across Hadoop distributions in varied deployment models ensures you have a smooth transition. Experience Hadoop at KPD Solutions!
