Hadoop has become the synonym for distributed computing and Big Data. The Hadoop User Group Ireland is a forum to discuss data analytics related questions. Our scope is broad and not focused on a particular Big Data framework. Our purpose is to raise awareness of the benefits and use cases of data analytics applications for your organisation. We will run multiple events and workshops throughout the year. There will be something for everyone: typical Hadoop use cases, technical tips and tricks and best practices, case studies, data architecture, trends and emerging technologies, ROI calculations etc.
