Big Data Analyst webinar: The modern analytical ecosystem

Hurry, time is running out to join Mike Ferguson, independent analyst and thought leader in Business Analytics, Big Data, Data Management and Smart Business, as he explores how the growing business demand to analyze new sources of data is impacting on traditional architectures and how these architectures need to change to accommodate big data analytical workloads.

In this brief session, Mike looks at new analytical use cases, the types of data that need to be analyzed, and the role of Hadoop in a modern analytical environment. In addition, with increasing data volumes and need to manage data across multiple analytical data stores, he also discusses how ETL processing can exploit the power of Hadoop in order to scale to meet this demand.

The 45 mins webinar will cover:

  • What’s Driving the big data agenda
  • New data and new analytical workloads
  • Beyond the data warehouse – new platforms for new analytical workloads
  •  Challenges with new big data sources
  • The role of Hadoop in the modern analytical ecosystem
  • Scaling data integration at low cost – ELT on Hadoop
  • Data governance in the new analytical ecosystem
  • The current challenges and real benefits
  • Simplifying access to new big data insight using SQL on Hadoop
