I’m the Director of Emerging Technologies on the SAS Best Practices team, a thought leadership organization at SAS Institute. While hot topics like the Internet of Things (IoT) and open source keep me giddy, my current focus is on big data and Hadoop - the hype, the reality and the journey. I jumped on the technology fast track over 25 years ago, starting with Digital Equipment. Yes, this was before the internet was born and before the sci fi of yesterday became the reality of today.
