Hello and welcome everybody to our TNWiki Article Spotlight on Tuesday.
The last time we spoke about an introduction to big data analytics with Microsoft Azure. Today I want to introduce you to the next part of this series created by Chervine – Big Data Analytics using Microsoft Azure: Hive. This one introduces you to Hive, a data processing engine sitting on top of MapReduce, which is mostly used in Business Intelligence solutions. Chervine explains what Hive is and the features that make Hive special, such as "Schema on Read". The next step is to query Hive. With the command line, PowerShell and the Azure portal he takes different approaches to do it – picked with a lot of examples.
If you want to get started with Hive without the pain of setting up Hadoop, this article gives you everything you need!
