About The Presentation:

Hadoop users face a complex set of choices when considering predictive analytics solutions. There are good reasons for this. Analytics is not “one thing”, and needs vary broadly. As a result, selecting architectures and aligning them with evolving Hadoop distributions and your users’ changing needs is no simple operation.

At this meet-up, Bill Jacobs, VP Product Marketing and Field CTO from Revolution Analytics will compare options for R analytics on Hadoop including open source R, rHadoop, Revolution R Enterprise and some performance results from various configurations.

We’ll spend remaining time discussing some of the new application and architecture opportunities facing users of R on Hadoop such as memory-based execution, analytics in large shared clusters, real-time analytics, production deployment, model management infrastructures and sensor based apps.
