BigDataX Presents: Apache Drill Workshop

Venue: Microsoft Auditorium, 21-MPR-01 Microsoft One Marina Boulevard S018989.

=== About This Workshop ===
Apache Drill ( provides a familiar ANSI SQL interface to explore big data on your own without having to create any centralized schema. As a consequence, exploring big data and building new information streams into your decision making process becomes extremely easy. Think about the ability to go from new data to actionable data in days or even hours as opposed to weeks.

Drill supports a variety of NoSQL databases and file systems, including HBase, MongoDB, MapR-DB, HDFS, MapR-FS, Amazon S3, Azure Blob Storage, Google Cloud Storage, Swift, NAS and local files. A single query can join data from multiple datastores. For example, you can join a user profile collection in MongoDB with a directory of event logs in Hadoop.

This session will give you an overview of how Drill works and several different use cases that enterprises are testing Drill for.
