Hadoop in the Cloud
Traditional on-premises data centers have long been the domain of modern data
platforms like Apache Hadoop, meaning companies who build their business on
public cloud were challenged to run Big Data processing and analytics at
scale. But recent advancements in Hadoop performance, security, and most
importantly cloud-native integrations, are giving organizations the ability
to truly gain value from all their data.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, David Tishgart, Director of Product
Marketing at Cloudera, will cover the ins and outs of Hadoop, and how it can
help cloud-based businesses.
Attendees will learn:
How to speed ETL pipelines and data transformations How to run low-latency
ad-hoc analytics across regions against object store data How to perform
high-value analytical workloads that enhance customer insights, improve
product and services... (more)
The speed at which data is generated, consumed, processed, and analyzed is
increasing at an unbelievably rapid pace. Social media, the Internet of
Things, ad tech, and gaming verticals are struggling to deal with the
disproportionate size of data sets. These industries demand data processing
and analysis in near real-time. Traditional Big Data-styled frameworks such
as Apache Hadoop are not well-suited for these use cases.
As a result, multiple open source projects have been started in the last few
years to deal with the streaming data. All were designed to
process a never-endin... (more)
Data has always had a place in politics. Politicians have relied on polls,
voter interests and demographics for years. In 2008, the Obama campaign was
recognized for its data-driven campaign, but it wasn’t until the 2012
election, when the tools became available, that big data was used to target
voters and win a presidential election using methods that had never been used
Much like businesses, political parties have collected a lot of data over the
years, but that data has been siloed into various categories: donations,
website visits, social media comments. While each o... (more)
Behind every cloud service or cloud-based solution, there are real people...
A robust ecosystem of solutions providers has emerged around cloud computing.
But who are the CEOs & CTOs behind those providers, who are the internal and
external entrepreneurs driving companies involved in the Cloud, who are the
leading engineers, developers, analysts, researchers, marketing
professionals, authors...who, in short, are the people behind the cloud?
This list will be updated weekly between now and November 4-7, 2013, when
13th Cloud Expo | Cloud Expo Silicon Valley opens its doors in the Sant... (more)
