HadooponomicsLogoThe mission of the Hadooponomics Podcast series is simple: to advance the Big Data conversation beyond its traditional buzz-heavy roots, and to take a look at the real story of what drives the value of Big Data. Throughout the podcast, we will bring you interviews with top practitioners and industry leaders to get their perspective on who and what is shaping the future landscape of data and analytics at scale.

Ultimately, the Hadooponomics podcast will take a counter-narrative approach as we investigate why the first generation of Big Data technologies never quite lived up to its promised hype. In doing so, we will explore new opportunities and capabilities that are being made possible by the coming second generation of Big Data innovations.

We welcome your thoughts and feedback throughout the series. Email host James Haight directly at, or find him on Twitter: @james_haight.
