And these numbers are not isolated. Dice reports similar job trends and technology research organization Wikibon states that Hadoop and NoSQL software and services are the fastest growing subset of the market for big data analytics, software and services.
And this is a great job trend for us here at MapR. Demand for enterprise-grade Hadoop solutions are on the rise – and we’re one step ahead of this demand by perfecting these solutions for you already.
With such an increased demand, we realize that it’s going to be difficult to hire quality Hadoop and NoSQL developers. The good thing about using MapR’s technology is that we’ve invested many man-years making Hadoop easier to use and administer. Through the support of industry standard APIs and protocols such as NFS, you don’t need to train all your personnel on the inner workings of Hadoop. Anyone that can use a file browser can access data in MapR. This is a huge difference compared with other distributions. The same is true from the administrative aspect; MapR offers self-healing, automation and ease of integration with other applications. The MapR management tools make it much easier for organizations to be successful with Hadoop deployments without sending people to a week-long boot camp.
