Cloudera, DST and Pivotal. Big Data Goes Mainstream

We'll hear from Cloudera about use case scenarios and applications and from Lisa Galindo of DST on their experiences with Big Data.

We'll also have a presentation from Scott Kahler, a KC Big Data Meetup founding member, on a new business he describes below.

"Pivotal - New Platform for a New Era"

Pivotal is building a new platform for a new era, setting the standard for Enterprise Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). The company’s mission is to enable customers to build a new class of applications, leveraging big and fast data, doing all of this with the power of cloud independence."

    Thanks to everyone who could make it last night. The logistics and construction on Broadway got us off to a late start but hopefully everyone got home in time to tuck in the kids. Thanks to sponsors DST Systems and Cloudera for the great spread and awesome space.
    Next Meetup in late August to be announced shortly.

      I'll be greeting those that park at 333 W 11th as well to make sure they make it to the right building.

    Parking entrance is on 12th street just east of Broadway. There's no entrance on 11th or from Broadway.

    I'm not sure this message got out to everyone but in case it didn't: The meeting location is 1055 Broadway. Parking is at 333 W 11th Street.

    All, The Big Data event at DST is actually being held at this address, 1055 Broadway, while the parking is directly across the street at 333 W. 11th. Look for a water fountain in a circular drive and that is the 1055 Broadway location. Associates at DST refer to this building as the "Broadway Building", so if you get turned around, you can ask someone in the area.... Lisa

    This should be fun! We've been testing with big data platforms for a short while, but, through our experiences may save others time or spur some ideas.
