Focused on accelerating the next-generation data architecture built on enterprise Apache Hadoop, Hadoop Summit Europe will feature networking and shared best practices between all levels of the IT landscape, including a vibrant community of architects, developers, data scientists, data professionals and solution providers. The event will feature two full days of content and five tracks, all designed to arm attendees with the know-how to successfully harness the power of big data with Hadoop, driving their business into the next level of the information age.

“Apache Hadoop continues to proliferate across Europe as enterprise organizations and leading IT vendors realize first-hand the tremendous business impact of the open source big data platform,” said Dave McJannet, vice president of marketing, Hortonworks. “Building on the success of previous Hadoop Summit events in both North America and Europe, Hadoop Summit Europe 2014 will feature nearly double the number of sessions as last year’s event and energize the community with new ideas and real-world case studies for making Hadoop the cornerstone of the data architecture of tomorrow. We look forward to seeing you there!”

Hadoop Summit 2014 attendees will hear and share use cases and success stories, best practices, cautionary takes and technology insights, including discussions on what’s next for Apache Hadoop. The Hadoop Summit tracks are divided into five key topic areas including: technical deep dives from Hadoop committers; the future of Hadoop with projects such as Apache YARN; data science using Hadoop; deployment and management of Hadoop operations; and using Hadoop with existing applications to derive business value from data.
