The State of Hadoop for Big Data Partners and Data Scientists
Meeting 3: MapR VP of Marketing Jack Norris
MapR is one of the leading providers of Hadoop. The company’s latest move involves OJAI (the Open JSON Application Interface) — which essentially allows developers to write and adjust Hadoop applications far more recently. Norris presented sample code to me the old way — and then showed me the alternative code leveraging OJAI.
Basically, OJAI required fewer commands and fewer lines of code to deliver far more application capabilities. Developers can test OJAI now, with general availability expected later this year.
