It is great that Microsoft is embracing Apache Hadoop. With a great BI stack and now the power of Hadoop nicely integrated with the stack, Microsoft would not only be able to hold on to its customer base, but would also potentially expand into new verticals where Big Data is emerging as a big opportunity.

Partnership with HortonWorks, the creator of Hadoop, is a pretty good idea. However, it remains to be see how quickly Hortonworks comes up with a stable and production ready version of Hadoop on Windows. Right strategy but lots of challenges for Microsoft to make this partnership work.

With these announcements, I wonder where would Microsoft's own projects Project Daytona ( and Project Dryad end up?
