The big data world is under a shiny spotlight because of the flurry of activity with cloud access and Hadoop technology implementation. In an increasingly cloud-friendly business landscape, more and more global businesses are moving to the cloud.  DATAVERSITY brought this interesting topic to our attention in their article, “Data Governance and Serverless Computing.”

The concerns about data security and data privacy continue and in the world of data governance, these can be gray areas. Some experts believe that Hadoop’s future is tenuous as more and more business are moving to the cloud.

Traditional business applications have always been very complicated and expensive. The amount and variety of hardware and software required to run them are daunting. You need a whole team of experts to install, configure, test, run, secure, and update them.
