Hadoop Overview and Big Data Trends

We will also run a quick overview of Hadoop for those who haven't had the chance to learn more about the technology. Please make sure you mark your calendars and RSVP.

We are also proud to announce that Dubai Internet City and in5 are now supporting our activities. They believe that Big Data is a next-generation topic and they endorse it as a cause for ICT industry development.

As data scientist and Business Analyst and specialised in end to end business analytics solutions. My recent assignments are Hadoop and Business Analytics and helping in some research data in cancer research using Hadoop for data processing to help the researchers. Just curious what's happening in Emirates on . Hadoop and what tools you are using to tackle big data issue and if your organisation has implemented Hadoop or part of Hadoop stacks as per my understanding Hadoop is still not mature enough to provide a single point business solution unless using third party applications e.g., IBM BigInsight/BigSheets/Cognos or HP HAVEN. What you guys thi
