What Hadoop is and is Not

Good take by Mike Madsen.  Its about parallel data processing which is very useful for doing analytics quickly with big and volatile data sets.  It does not replace analytics methods.   I have had a number of conversations recently that implied this was the case.  You may need a data scientist.  But you also need someone who can apply analytics to the data that Hadoop has uncovered.  Often not the same thing.
