“Hadoop projects often were undertaken with unrealistic expectations, and failures resulted. Gartner clients have described plans to replace broad, complex suites of jobs running against large, optimized data warehouses by “moving it to Hadoop.” Not surprisingly, many of these projects have not succeeded.”

– Merv Adrian and Rick Greenwald, Gartner
