This is the third in a series of presentations by major players in the Hadoop eco system. Our intention is to give the vendors an opportunity to present their thoughts on Hadoop and to deep dive into areas that should be considered when evaluating the plethora of "Big Data" solutions. We are calling this series of presentations "Hey big vendor". Next up is Hortonworks.

6.30pm Networking over a beer & pizza

7.00pm Welcome

7.05pm "Hey big vendor - Hortonworks"

By: Chris Harris - EMEA Technical Director

Chris will introduce Apache Ranger a framework to enable, monitor and manage comprehensive data security across the Hadoop platform. Data security within Hadoop has evolved to support multiple use cases for data access, while also providing a framework for central administration of security policies and monitoring of user access. With the advent of Apache YARN and Ranger, the Hadoop platform can now support a true secure data lake architecture.

8.30 - 9.00pm Networking
