White Paper Published By: Altiscale

Type:  White Paper
Length:  27 pages

Hadoop is recognized as the low-cost, scalable solution for processing and analyzing Big Data. The real cost of Hadoop, however, is really on the operational side - the cost of ongoing operations and management. If your enterprise is considering (or currently using) Hadoop to handle your Big Data workload, it's imperative to take the time to consider what your total costs and return are. This new Forrester study, titled "Total Economic Impact of Hadoop-as-a-Service" profiles the cost benefits seen by four companies implementing Hadoop projects. Get this report to learn:

  • The hidden costs and complexity of Big Data that cause many organizations to struggle
  • How the benefits of Big Data should far outweigh IT investment
  • Risk-Reward analysis of Hadoop-as-a-Service
