I recently attended the CIOsynergy conference in San Francisco, where Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and other top-ranked professionals gathered with software vendors to discuss some of the industry’s hottest topics. Throughout the day there were several panels and presentations, but for me, one of the most interesting of the day was “The Value of Automating the IT Enterprise and Beyond,” with Jonathan Crane, President and COO at IPSoft.

Chances are, at this moment you have at least one device connected to the cloud. Whether it be a cell phone tethered to a laptop or documents stored in a virtual folder, information can be managed from any location with an internet connection. At first, this may have seemed like a terrific way to evolve personal computing; but in recent years, the cloud has changed the face of modern-day business.

In March of this year Martin Chavez, CIO at Goldman Sachs, sat down to explain paradigm shifts in technology and the business world. 

He started the roughly 5 minute conversation by explaining matter-of-factly that “every 20 years, in the software business, there is a paradigm shift.” This notion creates quite a stir for the business world, as companies must learn to adapt and grow with these new ways of doing work, and creating information.

People frequently ask me if it’s necessary to have Java programming skills in order to enter the exciting world of Hadoop. When I begin to explain, I’m often met with a disappointment and a sense of limitation upon learning that Java and Hadoop do, in fact, go hand-in hand.  Let me start by saying that the answer to the question “Do I need to know Java to learn Hadoop?” is not a simple one. But I digress; the future of Hadoop is bright, and going forward, no requirements should be seen as limitations or roadblocks, but rather as ways to increase your expertise and become more seasoned in your work. As you make your way through this, I hope I will be able to clarify your concerns, and help get you on your way to excellence within Hadoop.
