Impressions from the inaugural Strata+Hadoop World Singapore 2015

There’s never a second chance to make a first impression, right? Well, the first session at the inaugural O’Reilly Strata+Hadoop World Singapore conference in my hometown left a remarkable impression on me.

In the evening of December 1st, 2015, I jumped out of a cab in the heart of the undeniably smartest city on the planet, whizzed by 3-storey tall 60-meter (200 feet) wide “Big Picture” screen at Suntec Conventions Centre,

SunTec Digital TV Wall Singapore

– the largest High Definition TV wall in the world – and picked up my EMC Exhibitor Badge. I rushed straight in to the only conference session of that day, the pre-keynote “PechaKucha Night”.

Wait, went straight in to… what?

Big Data - Hadoop Summit 2015

Before the ink has even really dried on Hadoop Summit15 in San Jose I am sitting down in a rare moment of peace to write out some reflections from my experience and what I have seen from the sessions, keynotes, partners, and users here at the show.

Hadoop Gets Real

The most lasting impression I got from the overall theme of the show and the people in attendance was that Hadoop is not an “emerging tool” anymore. The momentum, use cases, and indeed the buzz of attendees was that there is massive adoption and momentum built up in the marketplace. Behind this wave of early adoption is a lot of pent-up demand that is waiting for things to stabilize and become more enterprise ready. Once the tooling around the Hadoop ecosystem is more robust, and the platforms that it runs on are more operational, there is no limit to the demand that this ecosystem can produce.

In counterpoint to this fact, there is another countercurrent of theme that Hadoop is not “all things to all people”, and so there is a lot of discussion around the emergence of the logical successor to Hadoop as the analytics tool of record. Certainly the buzz around Spark is indicative that this is the way of the future and ties into the second theme of the show that I observed in numerous conversations and sessions.
