We have 2 speakers for February
Russell Jurney- Hadoop Evangelist @ Hortonworks.
Greg Rokita- Sr. Director Software Architecture @ Edmonds
Greg Rokita - from Edmunds.com 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.
- 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.
