Hadoop may be the ticket to the business advantages that big data offers, but you first have to get your data into it to get something out of it. Hadoop was created to store and process massive amounts of data, but users must get that massive data into HDFS or HBase. Here's how you can get your data loaded...

The KNIME community is growing. The turnout at the recent KNIME User Workshop in Zurich attracted over 150 people from Europe, the US, Japan, Australia and elsewhere – a new record for the event, now in its 6th year. While traditionally known for managing complex chemical and bio-informatics data pipelines, KNIME is increasingly being adopted for data mining in other areas such as customer analytics, financial services, risk assessment and social networks where there are many opportunities for extracting more value from big data.

Traditionally Java Performance has always been a bit of a misnomer.  In the early days of Java 1.1, performance was a secondary consideration after ease of programming and usability.  But the last few years have seen some amazing performance enhancements in the JVM.  Escape Analysis, Compressed References, and other JDK7 performance enhancements.  I'm not even including the myriad of smaller changes that the Sun JVM engineers are working on.
