Hadoop MapReduce

Hadoop MapReduce powers big data.

For organizations that want to harness the power of big data for sensor data analytics or social data mining, developers with skills in Hadoop MapReduce are a must.

Hadoop MapReduce is a software framework that distributes the processing of large data sets across clusters of commodity hardware, providing the massive parallelization and scalability required for big data. Hadoop MapReduce schedules and monitors these processing tasks, re-executing any failed tasks in order to provide resiliency.

But because Hadoop MapReduce (like other big data technologies) is a fairly new framework, developers with MapReduce programming skills are pretty tough to find. Not many developers have been trained in it, and the developers with expert Hadoop MapReduce skills have been scooped up by leading technology companies. That means organizations with big plans for big data must either pay top dollar to recruit leading developers, or find solutions that let developers work with Hadoop MapReduce using the skills they already have. And that's where Talend comes in.

Talend lets developers work easily with Hadoop MapReduce.

Talend provides a powerful and versatile open source platform that enables developers to work with big data without having to train on Hadoop MapReduce and other big data technologies. Talend's easy-to-use tools let developers quickly load data from log files, operational systems, sensors, social media and other sources into a big data platform, and transform it quickly to deliver invaluable business intelligence.

Talend also includes a full set of components for any data integration strategy – including application, database, service and even a master data hub – so developers can orchestrate data movement between sources and targets easily.

What can developers do with Talend's tools for Hadoop MapReduce?

Developers can rely Talend and the Hadoop MapReduce program for:

  • Integration. Talend includes connectors that provide instant connectivity to more than 800 sources out of the box. Developers can map sources to targets in an easy-to-use graphical environment, and use pre-built NoSQL connectors to access information in databases like Cassandra, MongoDB, Neo4J, Riak and others.
  • Manipulation. Talend simplifies the skills it takes to work with massive data sets. Developers can quickly load, extract and transform data without needing to be experts in Hadoop MapReduce.
  • Scaling. Talend lets organizations take advantage of the massive scalability of Hadoop MapReduce by automatically generating the underlying code for data connectors on the Hadoop cluster.
  • Governance. Talend simplifies big data governance with an intuitive environment for administrating big data jobs.
