Too late, too little for HP on Hadoop

HP recently announced its Big Data offering called HAVEn (Hadoop, Autonomy, Vertica, and Enterprise Security - scalable to 'n' apps).
(IBRS analyst Jorn)Bettin believes that HP is able to sell clients very powerful big data infrastructure assets, but leaves them to figure out what to do with the new assets. Hardly any company has the appropriate in-house expertise to decipher the insights gleaned through processing a bunch of large datasets...
from a client perspective, big data is all about combining different data sources in new ways, to use machine learning and advanced analytical techniques to generate new insights and then apply them creatively to things like customer experience and operational performance.
"It's in this area that I fail to see substance in HP's big data offering."
