Using Hadoop to Source Applications and Agile Data

We have 2 speakers for February

Russell Jurney- Hadoop Evangelist @ Hortonworks.

Greg Rokita- Sr. Director Software Architecture @ Edmonds

Greg Rokita - from is going to talk about a framework for providing Hadoop derived data to be feed in a generic fashion to different applications.

In the traditional model, the Data Warehouse is an edge system that collects the data from various data sources and uses the collected data for reporting and ad hoc analysis. This talk will describe an implementation of an alternative model where Hadoop driven Data Warehouse becomes a center of company's Big Data operations and sources strategic applications.

We will:
- provide motivations for the new approach
- describe the architecture of the system and the data flow
- demo sample application sourced by Hadoop
- show how HBase can play a central role as an application aggregator
- overview analytical, operational and new opportunity benefits of the approach


Russell Jurney - Author of Agile Data

Russell will present about rapidly prototyping analytics applications using the Hadoop stack to return to agility in light of the ever deepening analytics stack. The presentation uses Hadoop, Pig, NoSQL stores and lightweight web frameworks to rapidly connect end-users to real insights. Topics covered include writing User Defined Functions in Pig and publishing insights mined on Hadoop to NoSQL stores like MongoDB, HBase, and Cassandra, and using Python, Ruby, JRuby and Node.js to present data mined on Hadoop in a web browser.

    Would it be proper etiquette to bring a "sixer" to share?

      Of course, the more the merrier!
