IT Certifications Around the World - Differences in Numbers and Popularity

I wrote last month about the struggle to find Hadoop talent and how that could stymie adoption of the Big Data solution.

 

Forrester analyst James Kobielus believes the answer to the talent shortage is to develop the talent internally. He told me via Twitter:

Companies will find Hadoop talent from within. People are teaching themselves. It's open source. It's made for that.

Omer Trajman, vice president of customer solutions at Cloudera, told Network World:

If you go out there and try to hire, it's incredibly difficult. ... The most successful companies aren't necessarily going out and trying to hire aggressively. They have people who have the basic skills required, individuals who have backgrounds in statistics, science, data processing, Java development and analytics. It's really about looking inward into an organization, finding people who already have familiarity with the business and domain expertise, and teaching them how to use these tools.

There's another training option in the mix now. Hortonworks, which Forrester Research called "the technology leader and ecosystem builder for the entire Hadoop industry" has formally announced its Hadoop University. It's offering role-based coursework for developers and administrators in public, private on-site and live online courses. It's citing as a differentiator from other available training its hands-on labs involving real-world scenarios. It's certainly worth checking out.
