Big data continues to dominate the discussion as businesses both big and small seek to make sense of what exactly it is, and more importantly, what they should do about it. The three biggest challenges associated with big data investments include determining how to get value from data, defining the big data strategy, and obtaining the skills and capabilities needed to make sense of it in a meaningful way.
Join our webinar Thursday Nov. 20: Learn how to scale your infrastructure–today, tomorrow and for the future–and drive invaluable business impact.
The webinar will be about scale, from small to big Hadoop projects, but some are just beginning their journey. The best way to get started with Hadoop is with the Hortonworks Sandbox, designed to help users better understand Hadoop, build a proof of concept, and test new functionality before heading into production.
Talend has extended the Sandbox to include their development tools as well some really nice pre-canned demos that visually bring to life some well know big data use-cases. the Talend Big Data Sandbox is a pre-configured virtual environment designed to quickly and easily launch big data projects through practical use cases and interactive learning tools. The Talend Big Data Sandbox is delivered as a Virtual Machine (VM) that includes the Hortonworks Sandbox along with Talend Platform for Big Data that’s configured and ready to run. Together, these components allow you to discover the power of Hadoop, Hortonworks Data Platform, and Talend’s graphical Eclipse-based data integration tools—so you can process, manage, and analyze your data without the need for complex programming to generate optimized code.
Once in the Talend Big Data Sandbox, you have a number of ways you can explore and test data integration and analysis capabilities—all of which will help to dramatically accelerate your learning curve. Several real-world use cases, in conjunction with valuable documentation and video tutorials, allow you to easily walk through examples related to:
