Lingual is a free, open source project that was designed to enable fast and simple Big Data application development on Apache Hadoop. It leverages the platform support of the Cascading application framework, thereby allowing SQL users to utilize existing skills to create and run Big Data applications on Hadoop without any new training.
Cascading is the most widely used and deployed technology for building Big Data apps, with more than 75,000 user downloads a month. Those using it include eBay, TeleNav and Twitter.
“With Concurrent Lingual, companies can leverage existing skill sets and product investments by carrying them over to Hadoop,” said Chris Wensel, CTO and founder of Concurrent. “Analysts and developers, familiar with traditional BI tools, can create and run Big Data applications on Hadoop.”
