At Think Big we are pleased to announce Managed Services for Hadoop, our latest comprehensive service offer to help companies get the most value from their big data solution.
According to analysts, one of the largest issues with Hadoop success is the staffing gap. Simply stated, Hadoop talent in terms of application development, project management, administration and more is hard to find. Compounding the issue, as the open source community continues to innovate in and around various YARN based applications and the broader Hadoop ecosystem, it’s getting more and more difficult for your existing staff to keep their skills updated.
At Think Big, we have a compelling solution to these challenges, with Managed Services for Hadoop. Viewed from a high level, our services cover the following:
- Hadoop platform support – administration, monitoring and management for Hadoop distributions such as Cloudera, Hortonworks and MapR
- Application support – monitoring, ongoing application support and development for either Think Big or customer developed Hadoop applications
- Staff augmentation – Think Big provides complementary teams to clients for Hadoop administration and/or development
Hadoop is a whole new data management paradigm and thus should be examined closely for potential business value (i.e. cost reduction, revenue enhancement, improved productivity etc.). But getting value from Hadoop isn’t automatic. That’s where the value of expertise comes in.
Check out our press release on Managed Services for Hadoop. You’ll see that if you need Hadoop development and administration support, there’s no better choice
