Open Source Lingual Helps SQL Devs Unlock Hadoop

Lingual, which will be publicly available under the Apache 2.0 license within the next few weeks, gives analysts and developers familiar with SQL, JDBC and traditional BI tools the caoability to create and run Big Data applications on Hadoop using their existing skillsets.

“Concurrent was established with the belief that there had to be a simpler path to mass Hadoop adoption,” Wensel says. “And since day one, we have worked to create solutions that make it easier for developers to build powerful and robust Big Data applications quickly and easily. With the Lingual project, we are one huge step closer to realizing our mission.”
