Recently, I read "Why Big Data Projects Fail" by Stephen Brobst. I can’t agree more with his opinions which exposed the problem I’ve been worried about. In this article, I am going to further discuss this topic to remind the enterprises to beware of falling into such pitfall of failure. t Let’s have a look on a positive example. As a successful enterprise in leveraging big data, how does Google make use of the big data? 1. Collect the row data, capture the contents of each website, e-mail, or Cookie, and extract the key information. 2. Create the complex syndetic index for this information. Needless to say, the advertisement-related index must be also created. 3. Store these indices and corresponding contents in the distributed servers. 4. When users are browsing website and searching or viewing e-mails, Google will arrange their requests to go through a complex transla... (more)

Which Tool Will You Choose for Java: Hibernate, esProc, SQL, iBATIS or R?

The data computation layer in between the data persistent layer and the application layer is responsible for computing the data from data persistence layer, and returning the result to the application layer. The data computation layer of Java aims to reduce the coupling between these two layers and shift the computational workload from them. The typical computation layer is characterized with below features: Ability to compute on the data from arbitrary data persistence layers, not only databases, but also the non-database Excel, Txt, or XML files. Of all these computations, the... (more)

Two Ideal Solutions to Complex Calculation on Set in Java

In Java development, we may encounter the complex set operations. Java alone is not powerful enough to save programmers' efforts in implementing the computation details, which is time-consuming and poor in code reuse. In view of this, programmers usually resort to dynamic calculation script for set operation. SQL is surely the first kind of script that comes into most programmers' mind. However, to their disappointments, SQL does not support the explicit set, and is unable to represent the sets of a set, ordered set, generic set, and only the result set can be recognized as a set...

The Truth About Efficient Data Processes in Java Development

In Java development, the typical data computation problems are characterized with: Long computation procedure requiring a great deal of debugging Data may from database, or Excel/Txt Data may from multiple databases, instead of just one. Some computation goals are complex, such as relative position computation, and set-related computation Just suppose a sales department needs to make statistics on the top 3 outstanding salesmen ranking by their monthly sales in every month from Jan to the previous month, based on the order data. Java alone is difficult to handle such computations... (more)

Hadoop + esProc Help You Replace IOE

What is IOE? I=IBM, O=Oracle, and E=EMC. They represent the typical high-end database and data warehouse architecture. The high-end servers include HP, IBM, and Fujitsu, the high-end database software includes Teradata, Oracle, Greenplum; the high-end storages include EMC, Violin, and Fusion-io. In the past, such typical high performance database architecture is the preference of large and middle sized organizations. They can run stably with superior performance, and became popular when the informatization degree was not so high and the enterprise application was simple. With the ... (more)
