Big Data Expo comes to Utrecht, Netherlands

There’s excitement in the air as one of Benelux’s largest Big Data conferences “Big Data Expo”, comes to Utrecht in The Netherlands.

We’re sponsoring and you’ll find our experts Chris Harris and Jhon Masschelein presenting such topics as “5 Steps for Effective use of Apache Spark in Hortonworks Data Platform 2.3” and “Lessons Learned: 5 Common Hadoop Use Cases”. You can register here.

As Hortonworks continues to extended its footprint in Europe, we’re seeing  some exciting use cases and an increasing momentum of enterprise adoption of Hadoop. The Hadoop Summit that we organized in Brussels early this year showcased some of the great European use cases. Here’s a short overview of one my favorites:

ING Bank: Destroying Data Silos for Creating a Predictive Bank

Hellmar Becker a Utrecht resident discusses breaking down Data Sillos and creating a centralized Datalake at ING. He also discusses the modernization of their data centers, migrating away from legacy systems within their governance and security framework.

Bart Buter, Hellmar’s co-presenter discusses the banks steps into becoming a truly predictive bank. Bart also provides some do’s, don’ts and difficulties in this journey and talks about the future for the bank including “integrating analytics as part of data flows”, “showing interactive results to individuals without access to the cluster” and many more.

To conclude, Big Data Expo, will showcase an array of new technologies, exciting case studies and organizations making the most out of data. Come visit us at Stand 21 as my colleague Alfie Murray-Dudgeon pictured below awaits.
