To the majority of developers and users of Hadoop, his presentation has depicted a blueprint for the future development of Hadoop ecosystem. Doug Cutting said, "Hadoop and Big Data technologies have not come to their maturity yet and will be more rapidly developed in the future." Founder of Condor, Professor Miron Livny from University of Wisconsin-Madison, andDean of the Computer Science Department at the Ohio State University, Robert M. Chritchfield Professor Xiaodong Zhang, also attended HiC2011. The two famous computer scientists have brought academic viewpoints on Big Data computing to all audience.
