The Hadoop use cases


Hadoop can help in solving the big data problems that we discussed in Chapter 1, Introduction to Big Data and Hadoop. Based on Data Velocity (Batch and Real time) and Data Variety (Structured, Semi-structured and Unstructured), we have different sets of use cases across different domains and industries. All these use cases are big data use cases and Hadoop can effectively help in solving them. Some use cases are depicted in the following figure:
