Big Data is enchanting organizations of all sizes, and analysis of vast data sets is certainly compelling. But dissonance can arise around integrating Big Data initiatives with existing technology investments. Are NewSQL, NoSQL and SQL really so different? Will Big Data absorb Business Intelligence? Are these artificial distinctions within Business Analytics and data platform management? Join us for a panel discussion with industry leaders as we contemplate how today’s data technologies paradoxically intersect and diverge.
The event will be moderated by ZDNet Big Data blogger and CEO of Blue Badge Insights, Andrew Brust and is a cooperative between the Enterprise Tech Meetup and the New York Business Intelligence Meetup.
Food/beverages and video recording of the event is graciously sponsored by O'Reilly Strata Conference. See below for more details on their Bridge To Big Data program and registration perks for NYBI members!
