The MapReduce framework is a proven method for processing large volumes of data but even simple problems require expertise.  Tackling the learning curve for Big Data and efficient processing is a daunting task for developers just getting started.  The Apache Crunch project helps to break down complex processing problems into simple concepts which can be utilized on industry standard frameworks such as Hadoop and Spark.
