For the last couple months, Hortonworks has been excited to be a proud sponsor of the Big Analytics 2012 roadshow. These roadshows have provided us some great insights into the role of Apache Hadoop in this emerging Big Data market. We had some great discussions with attendees regarding their current and future plans for the use of Hadoop and other Big Data technologies. Another interesting insight was the need for Data skills, people who know what to ask of that data and how to use tools like Hadoop to provide patterns, answers, interpretations and present the data.
On Wednesday, 12/12/12, Hortonworks will participate in the last leg (SOLD OUT SHOW) of their 4-city roadshow, in New York City. We, along with other Big Data experts, will discuss the new economics of Data and will walk through an array of Hadoop and Big Data use cases. Our very own, Jim Walker, Director of Product Marketing, will also be part of a very interesting keynote program, discussing Apache Hadoop’s role in your big data architecture.
If you’re attending, come by, visit us, we would love to meet you.
There will also be a live simulcast on a panel discussion at Big Analytics New York. This panel discussion will focus on the role of Data Scientists, provide some real-life examples how Data Scientists can improve the business and answer any questions you might have. You can ask questions and follow the discussion thread on www.twitter.com using the hash-tag #BARS12, or follow along on TweetChat at: http://tweetchat.com/room/BARS12
