Hadoop is being adopted by companies all over the world, irrespective of their size. For every company that ahs implemented Hadoop there is a need for a Hadoop Administrator. Even companies that are yet to adopt Hadoop, but has a production cluster that is more than 20 nodes, still requires an administrator full time. The need for personnel with skills of a Hadoop Administrator is urgent and growing.
Here are some quotes of market experts that leaves no doubt that Hadoop is the next best thing for Data Science:
“YARN is the major innovation in Hadoop 2.0. With Hadoop 2.0 we expect this ecosystem to grow like bamboo in spring time”.
Founder of Bloor Research, Robin Bloor
Cowen & Co. Analyst, Peter Goldmacher: “We believe Hadoop is a big opportunity and we can envision a small number of billion dollar companies based on Hadoop.”
The momentum of Hadoop seems to be only gathering speed with no signs of stopping. Companies have understood the advantages of Hadoop and are sparing no time in implementing it creating a huge void in those certified to administer Hadoop in the complex ecosystems of companies. Since 2008, in the US alone the need for Hadoop Administrators is expected to grow 300% by 2018. The inadequate Hadoop Administrators and the skill gap are the biggest challenges companies are facing while implementing Big Data initiatives.
