Hadoop has been widely adopted by organizations for various use cases. One of its key use cases is in storing and analyzing log data, financial data from systems like JD Edwards, and retail catalog and session data for an omnichannel experience. Users have found that Hadoop's distributed processing capabilities allow for efficient and cost-effective storage and analysis of large amounts of data. It has been particularly helpful in reducing storage costs and improving performance when dealing with massive data sets. Furthermore, Hadoop enables the creation of a consistent data store that can be integrated across platforms, making it easier for different departments within organizations to collect, store, and analyze data. Users have also leveraged Hadoop to gain insights into business data, analyze patterns, and solve big data modeling problems. The user-friendly nature of Hadoop has made it accessible to users who are not necessarily experts in big data technologies. Additionally, Hadoop is utilized for ETL processing, data streaming, transformation, and querying data using Hive. Its ability to serve as a large volume ETL platform and crunching engine for analytical and statistical models has attracted users who were previously reliant on MySQL data warehouses. They have observed faster query performance with Hadoop compared to traditional solutions. Another significant use case for Hadoop is secure storage without high costs. Hadoop efficiently stores and processes large amounts of data, addressing the problem of secure storage without breaking the bank. Moreover, Hadoop enables parallel processing on large datasets, making it a popular choice for data storage, backup, and machine learning analytics. Organizations have found that it helps maintain and process huge amounts of data efficiently while providing high availability, scalability, and cost efficiency. Hadoop's versatility extends beyond commercial applications—it is also used in research computing clusters to complete tasks faster using the MapReduce framework. Finally, the Systems and IT department relies on Hadoop to create data pipelines and consult on potential projects involving Hadoop. Overall, the use cases of Hadoop span across industries and departments, providing valuable solutions for data collection, storage, and analysis.
