The advent of big data and the cloud have fundamentally changed the nature of IT. Development of cloud technology has incorporated existing scalable software in order to aggregate, transform, and manipulate virtually endless streams of information. As the technology matures, cloud-based services will play an eminent role in exploring and leveraging data from a rich ecosystem of consumer devices, sensor technologies, existing sources, and more. Many products have been introduced to facilitate the development of a wide array of business applications in the cloud. One such product, Microsoft HDInsight, is billed as a means to “Process, analyze, and gain new insights from Big Data […]”

In this presentation, we will present a working demonstration of HDInsight followed by an open discussion on the technology



Alex Suttmiller is a consultant at QSI. He studied scientific data visualization at the Ohio State University, where he learned several techniques to explore both structured and unstructured data for the generation of substantive metrics. Other interests include system design and interaction. Creating immersive and intuitive user experiences is a natural extension to exploring and presenting data in the most elegant and meaningful way possible. To relax he enjoys spending time with his dog Rommie, a passion for coffee, time on the water kayaking, and spending time with friends.

    I was unable to find the location. Put the address in my GPS but did not arrive at the correct location.

      I apologize for the difficulty in finding the location. We've had a few people with similar troubles. The Improving Enterprises office is at 1 Easton Oval. If you get to Easton Oval, you'll see other buildings from Huntington Bank, SafeAuto Insurance and a few others. The 1 Easton Oval building sits back a little bit from the Easton Oval road. The building number isn't that easy to see. It may help to see an aerial view -­. In future meetups, I'll try to provide a better description of the location.
