Ten “Design First” Principles from Strata/Hadoop World NYC
Several themes emerged from my conversations with more than 35 vendors at the Strata/Hadoop World show in New York City this week. (See list of vendors I visited at the end.) Topping the list: automated machine learning services, simplified streaming platforms, end-to-end data lake management software, and powerful, low-cost data and hardware infrastructure. More importantly, I spotted the emergence of ten “design first” principles that will guide the development of data-driven applications in the future.
If you want to see and feel the pace of innovation in the analytics field, just spend a few hours at a Strata+Hadoop World conference.
I’ve been covering business intelligence, analytics, and data management for 20+ years and Strata+Hadoop World made me feel like a novice. Of the more than 100 exhibitors on the show floor, I only recognized about two-thirds. Where did all the new vendors come from? Whose needs are they serving?
For that matter, I hardly recognized many established vendors. The oldest ones are pivoting abruptly, embracing open source, cloud, streaming, subscription pricing, and freemium business models. Most speak a language of Apache projects that I hardly understand or can keep up with. It’s all quite dizzying.
Themes and Market Segments
Before I mention the ten “design-first” principles that emerged from the show, let me categories in more details the types of capabilities that vendors are delivering:
In my years covering the space, I’ve discovered that the vendor community is usually about five to seven years ahead of the early majority market. But given the velocity of change in the technology and the eagerness of companies to reduce their IT costs with faster, better, cheaper tools, platforms, and infrastructure, I’m going to halve that number.
It’s pretty clear that there is a revolution going in the analytics space. There is a lot of dust and debris flying everywhere but the silhouette of the future is gradually emerging. The development of data-driven applications is starting to adhere to a number of key design principles.

In the next several years, organizations will begin designing analytic environments with the following “design first” principles. Design first for….
