1Hadoop Acceptance Growing
There is much greater acceptance of closed-source community of technology providers now building value on top of the Hadoop platform. At the recent Hadoop Summit 2012, this industry metric was shared:Â There were nine providers in the Hadoop market in 2009, and now that number has surpassed 120 in 2012.
2Hadoop Integrations Increasing
Hadoop alone cannot solve all problems for big data in the enterprise. It is being rapidly adopted, but is being integrated with other traditional database management systems, including data warehouse/BI platforms.Â All the major all-purpose IT providers (Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Oracle, Cisco Systems, IBM, EMC) have their own Hadoop options.

7Other Analytics Platforms Doing Good Work, Too
8Offline Tape Storage Heading for Obsolescence in Big Data Applications
Big data technologies will eliminate offline tape storage. There is no reason to put any enterprise data on offline tape, which is cheap, but is also inaccessible and highly risky. This, in fact, may be the most hotly argued point on this list. More than half of all enterprises currently use tape storage for at least one purpose, such as archives, backup or disaster recovery.
9Machine Learning Rising in Importance
10Hadoop Will Evolve
The Hadoop platform, which only does offline batch processing at this time, will begin including things like free-text search technology and GUI-based visualization tools.
