Attending CIO Forum this year? Come see
I have an entrepreneur friend who used to carry a butter knife around. He claimed this almighty tool was the only one he ever needed! While the butter knife does serve a wide range of purposes (especially with a stretch of the imagination), in practice it doesn’t always yield optimal results. For example, as a screwdriver, it may work for common screws, but certainly not a Phillips (unless you push down very hard and hope not to strip the screw). As a hammer, you may be able to drive finishing nails, but your success and mileage may vary. As a pry bar, well, I think you get my point! Clearly one tool isnt sufficient for all purposes a good toolbox includes various tools each fulfilling a specific purpose.

I have just come back from a business trip to China where I visited several large Chinese telecom customers to talk about the recent big Vertica win at Facebook. Two questions these customers had constantly asked me were: What?s the future of MPP databases? Will Hadoop become one database that rules the whole analytic space?
