From home to business and even entertainment, technology is infiltrating everything we do. There is even a trend called the Internet of Things, or IoT, that is turning everyday appliances into smart devices. However, in the midst of this ongoing digital transformation of our world there doesn’t seem to be enough of an emphasis placed on security.
In an effort to keep up with the competition, businesses too often leave security behind, and that can present real issues with devastating consequences. Digital transformation is necessary, but so is security—the same type of security we need for our computers and mobile devices. So why aren’t more businesses in tune to the need for IOT security.

one thing we have been discussing and targeted for further research is Hadoop and potential opportunities for Enterprise Content Management. This post will begin a series of posts on our thoughts and R&D activities to provide an OpenContent connection to Hadoop.
Background on Hadoop
Hadoop is an open-source software framework for distributed storage and distributed processing on clusters of commodity hardware. Two core components provide some interesting capabilities for content management:
- Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) – a distributed file-system that stores data on commodity hardware, providing very high aggregate bandwidth across the cluster.
- Hadoop MapReduce – a programming model for large-scale data processing.
All of the modules in Hadoop are designed with a “clustered” assumption that any individual machine or machines failure would be automatically managed by the framework. Apache Hadoop’s MapReduce and HDFS components originally derived respectively from Google’s MapReduce and Google File System (GFS) papers.
Hadoop has benefited by heavy investment both by services providers as well as corporations. From the Apache_Hadoop Wiki, Facebook and Yahoo have used Hadoop extensively for petabyte installations. The Wiki also references more than half of the Fortune 50 use Hadoop.

Technology has made many things easier in our lives because nowadays we can do many things that before we couldn't , for example, you can see by videochat your relatives in other countries and speak with them in the same way if they were with you but without touch, another example could be to search for things or places it's easier now, or education because you can take online classes and this would help you to save money and time.
There are bad things too, but that is another topic because the question is: `If the world is easier with technology` not If it's better.
