How an Open Source Technology Became a World-Changing Business
with Amr Awadallah of Cloudera
"For startups, timing is everything."
Amr Awadalla, co-founder of Cloudera, talks with us about how they originally thought their customers would just be tech/web/telecom/financial industries, but the advent of the "internet of things" completely changed the game. Their technology is now being used for everything from early detection of sepsis after operations, saving hundreds of thousands of lives, to massive-scale agricultural implementations. This is an eye-opening look at how one technology can literally change the world. And according go Awadallah, it wouldn't have happened without Yahoo's initial embrace of the open-source.
