I first heard the question above at a big data event in Boulder CO. Two young entrepreneurs were trying to decide what session to attend and one was titled RDBMS for Big Data. The young attendee was intrigued by the idea of a structured database environment because he had founded his company using Hadoop and was now running into some challenges with the solution. Hadoop has certainly disrupted the traditional data management landscape and in many ways has opened the door for new innovative strategies and techniques, but is it a silver bullet?
