Making Production Hadoop Faster, Easier and More Productive: ODPi Member Conversation with Pivotal

By | Blog

In our second ODPi Member Conversation podcast, John Mertic sat down with Pivotal Software’s Head of Data, Jacque Istok.

Their engaging discussion focused on the challenges enterprises face when trying to get value out of their data in Hadoop.

As a founding member of ODPi, and former technologist with a long history in data warehousing and data analytics, Jacque also weighed in on standards and how they enable application interoperability, portability, governance and security across the ecosystem.

Tying the importance of standards into his thoughts around ODPi, he noted “Our vision has always been to make it easier for customers and products/vendors/projects to be able to interact with an enterprise standard for Hadoop in an easy and common way.”

To hear more of Jacque and John’s insight, including why it was important to Pivotal that ODPi was a core organization with a common goal for the Hadoop platform itself, tune in to the episode on our YouTube channel!
