Big Data, Big Challenges: To Hadoop or Not to Hadoop?

To Hadoop or not to Hadoop, that is the question? Industry expert, Steve Sarsfield, will address use cases where businesses can leverage the benefits of Hadoop. Attend and learn Big Data best practices that can help businesses in their Big Data journey. Also discussed will be the potential areas where the core Hadoop offering fails to bridge the data analytics gap and how critical services like Vertica can be. 

We will actively engage the audience by asking what your Big Data challenges are and aligning them with a right-fit solution. 

Attend and Win!

    The Q&A portion was very informative. The two presenters covered a wide range of technical ground.
    The main presentation was sales-pitchy, but was also focused, on-topic, technical and brief – so worth listening and learning. Kind of like being at a technical tradeshow and listening to a vendor’s booth presentation. Thanks again to the organizers and presenters.

    The guys from HP Vertica were friendly and the information was geared toward buyers.

    It was some good information and I look forward to seeing everyone again! Keep an eye out for this group to meet at MediaMath in Cambridge. We can show how big data analytics works in Ad Tech!
