Select * From BigData

Big data is Big.

And Complex.

And if it's stored in Hadoop, you may want to query that data.

Alongside your traditional data stored in Relational Databases.

This poses a problem.

Which Microsoft found a solution.

A Driver.

For Hive.

Which allows common ETL tools access to the data.

And copy it to a database.

This is just the beginning of a great flood gate about to open.

Because if you can expose Big Data with Traditional Data in a common Select statement, just think of the possibilities.

Everyone will become a data scientist perhaps.

Where they'll write some code such as "Select * From BigData Where EveryoneIsADataScientist = True".

Wouldn't that be nice!
