Where is Big Data Headed Next on the Information Superhighway – CF021

This week on Cyber Frontiers Kevin Schoonover joins us again to cover part two of our series investigating how up and coming technologies are being incorporated into enterprise IT environments. In particular, we look at where we’ve been with data infrastructure in the last five years, and what the future holds in store. With discussions around the rapidly changing infrastructure and hardware design for data analytics, as well as the security and reliability of information that has become an increasingly valuable commodity, we quickly pick up where we left off in episode 20 for a jam packed hour of insight and conversation.

Cyber Frontiers is all about Exploring Cyber security, Big Data, and the Technologies Shaping the Future Through an Academic Perspective!   Christian Johnson, a student at the University of Maryland will bring fresh and relevant topics to the show based on the current work he does.

Hadoop has been good, but what is next?

What about KROLL E-discovery division?


Lexis/Nexis seem to be getting in the game?


Are Cloudera, HortonWorks and Pivotal all locked on Hadoop?

EMC made a big splash with GreenPlum:


We will move from “big data” to firehose-sized signals processing


HDFS/GFS had a focus on the JBOD cluster, these types of techniques will still be important for “archival” based big data. Signals processing will most certainly be all in-memory.

Other topic, the impact of IoT on Big Data and intern programs for Data Scientists.
