Big Data in the Big D Meetup for October 16th features MapR. (Presentation - 40 minutes)

Hadoop & NoSQL Joining Forces
More and more organizations are turning to Hadoop and NoSQL to manage big data. In fact, many IT professionals consider each of those terms to be synonymous with big data. At the same time, these two technologies are seen as different beasts that handle different challenges. That means they are often deployed in a rather disjointed way, even when intended to solve the same overarching business problem. The emerging trend of “in-Hadoop databases” promises to narrow the deployment gap between them and enable new enterprise applications. In this talk, Dale will describe that integrated architecture and how customers have deployed it to benefit both the technical and the business teams.

Dale Kim - Director, Industry Solutions
Dale Kim is the Director of Industry Solutions at MapR.  His background includes a variety of technical and management roles at information technology companies. While his experience includes work with relational databases, much of his career pertains to non-relational data in the areas of search, content management, and NoSQL, and includes senior roles in technical marketing, sales engineering, and support engineering. Dale holds an MBA from Santa Clara University, and a BA in Computer Science from the University of California, Berkeley.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
