Five or six years ago, analysts working with big datasets made queries and got the results back overnight. The data world was revolutionized a few years ago when Hadoop and other tools made it possible to get
the results from queries in minutes. But the revolution continues. Analysts now demand sub-second, near real-time query results. Fortunately, we have the tools to deliver them. This report examines tools and technologies that are driving real-time big data analytics.

‘Almost Naked Animals 1: What Could Possibly Go Wrong?‘ by Sarah Courtauld (Hodder Children’s Books) is available for FREE download on the Amazon UK Kindle site. Just click Amazon UK.
Almost Naked Animals is a high-energy CITV series featuring a cast of pants-wearing animals. Now get a look behind the scenes at the Banana Cabana and see what Howie and his friends are up to …
Running a busy hotel is a tough job, particularly when you’re as bad at it as Howie is, but it helps when you have friends. Joining Howie are a gang of bottom-covered misfits including Octo, Bunny, Narwhal, Duck and Piggy … and in a rival hotel nearby lurks Howie’s evil sister Poodle, who’s obsessed with taking over the Banana Cabana and shutting it down for ever! Howie has an urge to do Dog Stuff, but with no other dogs around but his evil sister, he’s out of luck. And Poodle has a Cunning Plan. Will Howie discover who his real friends are, before it’s too late?
The author translating the Almost Naked Animals from TV to book form is a BAFTA-honoured comedy writer, and these books are in full colour throughout – with a bonus game code!
