Apache Hadoop didn’t disrupt the data center, the data did.

Shortly after corporate IT functions within enterprises adopted large-scale systems to manage data, the Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) emerged as the logical home of all enterprise data. Today, every enterprise has a data warehouse that serves to model and capture the essence of the business from their enterprise systems.

This paper, presented by Hortonworks and Denodo, discusses Apache Hadoop, its capabilities as a data platform and how it supports hybrid data warehouse, in combination with data virtualization, to deliver a single unified and coherent logical view on all enterprise data assets in and outside the data lake, minimizing unneeded data replication.
