Big Data Analysis Patterns: Tying real world use cases to strategies for analysis using big data technologies and tools.
Big data is ushering in a new era for analytics with large scale data and relatively simple algorithms driving results rather than relying on complex models that use sample data. When you are ready to extract benefits from your data, how do you decide what approach, what algorithm, what tool to use? The answer is simpler than you think.
This session tackles big data analysis with a practical description of strategies for several classes of application types, identified concretely with use cases. Topics include new approaches to search and recommendation using scalable technologies such as Hadoop, Mahout, Storm, Solr, & Titan.
