Join us and participate in an exclusive Big Data and Analytics Developer Evening hosted by the IBM Big Data and Analytics team. Open source Apache Hadoop is a great framework for distributed processing of large data sets. But there’s a difference between "playing" with big data versus solving real problems. The reality is that Hadoop alone might not be enough. Experience IBM’s enterprise-class Hadoop product, InfoSphere BigInsights, which enhances open source Hadoop with required enterprise capabilities including: analytics, visualisation, security, standard SQL, enterprise HBase, developer/admin tools.
We will kick off with Big Data use case discussions and an overview of what big data really is, and then move quickly to get hands-on with Big Data using InfoSphere BigInsights Quick Start Edition with guidance from development experts. This is a unique opportunity to develop skills and learn about exciting technologies and techniques that you can immediately take back to your organisation.
This event is FREE. Drinks and some food will be provided.

• Lever the full power of SQL with Hadoop
Labs will use BigInsights Quick Start VM. To learn more beforehand and get hands on go to Big Data University. By downloading the IBM BigInsights Quick Start Edition VM in advance, participants will have the chance to get hands on with IBM's enterprise-class Hadoop distribution. A facilitated lab exercise will walk through the process of generating and loading data and then creating the necessary structures to query it using IBM's full ANSI standard SQL interface. This will demonstrate some of the power and flexibility of IBM's platform.
