Abstract:

Global Combat Support System - Marine Corp is a large logistics system designed to replace numerous legacy systems used by the Marine Corps. While it has been in existence for a while, its intended potential has not been fully realized. Therefore, various teams are working hard to develop the analytics that will benefit the community. With the growth of data, the only way these analytics in Structured Query Language SQL will run efficiently will be on proprietary hardware from Oracle. This research looks at running the same analytics on commodity hardware using Hadoop Distributed File System and Java Map Reduce. The results show that while it takes longer to program in Java over SQL, the analytics are just as, or even more powerful, as SQL, and the potential to save on hardware cost is significant.
