Title: Multi-Dimensional Analytics on Hadoop with Intellicus
Speaker: Ajay Anand, VP of Product Management and Marketing for Intellicus
Abstract: The primary goal of organizations from Big Data analytics is to make better decisions by enabling business and data experts to extract insights from huge volumes of untapped data. We all know that Big Data systems handle the Volume and Variety of Data better, whereas traditional Data Warehouses and OLAP systems are not designed to function on the new Big Data platforms like Hadoop.

Intellicus can help:
• In organizations' journeys towards doing multi-dimensional analytics on Big Data infrastructures in a most secure manner
• To visualize and get insights, slice & dice from huge volumes of data directly from Hadoop
• Allow business divisions like Marketing, Finance, Fraud & Risk prevention and Compliance among many others to dig deep into the untapped data and derive better efficiency and productivity
• Bring Data Scientists, IT and Business users together towards realizing their vision on research, security and business outcomes
