Google Just Made Big Data Expertise Much Tougher to Fake - Businessweek

Time for a big data buzzword bingo board update

"Google has taken internal tools—those funky-named ones such as Flume and MillWheel—and bundled them into the Cloud Dataflow service, which it plans to start offering to developers and customers as a cloud service. The promise is that other companies will be able to deal with more information easier and faster than ever before.

While Google has historically been a very secretive company, it is opening up its internal technology as a competitive maneuver. Google is proving more willing than, say, Amazon.com to hand over the clever things built by its engineers to others. It’s an understandable move, given Amazon’s significant lead in the cloud computing arena."
