BigData : Hadoop and noSQL in the enterprise.
The emergence and evolution of Hadoop and noSQL in the enterprise has brought about a paradigm shift to our industry as significant as Codd and Date were with the relational database. BigData will be examined and explained along with a number of different use cases and data stories that will help explain and bring clarity to this new paradigm. Hadoop platform architecture and new and upcoming developments will be discussed along with going into detail of the Hadoop HDFS myths and realities. Will take a look Oracle’s entry into the BigData ecosystem including Oracle BigData Appliance, Oracle connectors for Hadoop and R, Endeca Information Discovery and noSQL DB.
