ODPi and ASF: Building a Stronger Hadoop Ecosystem - John Mertic
ODPi Director of Program Management, John Mertic, explains how the work of the ODPi complements and supports that of the ASF. Since ODPi’s launch in 2015, there has been some confusion around how its work may overlap, or potentially compete, with that of the ASF. Mertic will detail how the ODPi’s specifications and by-laws reinforce the role of the ASF as the singular place where Hadoop development occurs. He will also explain how the ODPi’s focus on the downstream Hadoop ecosystem oxygenates the Big Data market and stimulates growth.
