EMC’s Dan Hushon on Pentaho and Hadoop
Dan Hushon, a Senior Director at EMC’s CTO office, has blogged about our Hadoop announcement: ETL & Hadoop/Map-Reduce… a match made in Orlando!
Dan has been at EMC for a number of years and know a lot about data. He is dead on when he talks about metadata and dimensionality of Map/Reduce and NoSQL data stores. These environments are rich in data but the metadata can be very sparse or non-existent. This makes reporting and analysis of the data harder.
