Full data lifecycle projects hold tremendous potential for organizations to uncover new insights and drivers of revenue and profitability. Big Data has brought the promise of doing device data capture, data enrichment, data science, and analytics at scale to enterprises. This promise also comes with challenges for developers, admins, and consumers to continuously access new data and collaborate.

Full data lifecycle projects involve many underlying technologies like Nifi, Kafka, Spark, HBase, Hive, Impala, etc.. How do IT professionals meet the demands of data consumers and decision makers? How do they make sure the right people can access everything they need?

Data Visualization on Big Data
In this meetup, join Greg Bleers, a Sr. Solutions Engineer and Carolyn Duby, Lead Cyber Security SME and Principal Solutions Engineer - both of Cloudera - and learn how the attributes of a modern platform empowers teams to build end-to-end implementations using all data that’s possible to acquire and support high value use cases for the business. We will show a demo of Data Visualization and the CDP SDX layer (powered by Apache Ranger and Apache Atlas) with the focus on reducing complex toolset chaining and governing access to data consumers and decision makers.

The demo will cover Data Visualization from a governance perspective. We will show how SDX helps teams manage the access to all the data that’s possibly relevant and make it accessible to those who need it, when they need it. We will walk through the data catalog, security policies, and data lineage prior to building a dashboard.
