Next Eight Ways to Put Hadoop to Work in Any IT Department-6 Next

Loraine has been quoting this excellent post by Ravi Kalakota recently, and this is what he says is one of the three primary use cases for Hadoop. What’s cool about Hadoop in this situation is that you can add new data to existing data without having to reindex the entire cluster.

It’s not too hard to find use cases for Hadoop, but many seem to focus on how Internet companies use Big Data. That’s great if you’re LinkedIn, CBS Interactive or Four Square, but what about the rest of us?

What do you do with Hadoop if you’re the CIO of a more traditional enterprise IT division?

Loraine Lawson has been reading a lot about this while researching “7 Enterprise-Friendly Ways of Dealing with Big Data,” from our sister site, Enterprise Apps Today.

She found two common Hadoop uses that could be deployed by any IT department in any industry while researching that article. Since writing it, she’s found more great examples of how CIOs can use Hadoop with existing systems, for a total of eight ways any IT division can use Hadoop.
