As with most technology ventures, the technical side of a company adopting a Big Data solution is just one half of the conversation. The other half revolves around the organization adapting to a market that demands such a shift in strategy. Whether transforming objectives to meet the needs of next-generation business demands, or reducing IT operational costs, data is at the center of the journey. There is no better time to put the experts where the business potential is and have a Center of Excellence dedicated to driving customer-valued results.
The road to your new Big Data adoption journey begins only days away at the San Jose DataWorks Summit (June 13-15). Scott Shaw, Sr. Solutions Engineer at Hortonworks and Kit Menke, Software Architect at Enterprise Holdings will lead a session showcasing how IT can address Big Data within the enterprise.
Enterprise Holdings Inc. operates the Enterprise Rent-A-Car (ECAR), National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands in more than 90 countries and territories. With 70 million consumer transactions around the world and 1.9 million vehicles, Enterprise Holdings epitomizes Big Data.
Scott and Kit will discuss the value of a Center of Excellence, as well as Enterprise Holding’s ability to innovate with a next generation data warehouse. The session will be held at 2:10pm on Thursday, June 15th and it is titled
Innovation in the Enterprise Rent-A-Car Data Warehouse
The abstract below will provide a glimpse into what you can look forward to at DataWorks Summit:
Big Data adoption is a journey. Depending on the business the process can take weeks, months, or even years. With any transformative technology the challenges have less to do with the technology and more to do with how a company adapts itself to a new way of thinking about data. Building a Center of Excellence is one way for IT to help drive success.
This talk will explore Enterprise Holdings Inc. (which operates the Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car) and their experience with Big Data. EHI’s journey started in 2013 with Hadoop as a POC and today are working to create the next generation data warehouse in Microsoft’s Azure cloud utilizing a lambda architecture.
We’ll discuss the Center of Excellence, the roles in the new world, share the things which worked well, and rant about those which didn’t.
No deep Hadoop knowledge is necessary.
