How Verizon is Solving Big Data Problems with Interactive BI

Enterprises are outgrowing their traditional business intelligent solutions and struggling to use the data they have collected to gain real insights. What happens is that data engineers will scramble to shift data sets between repositories so that data can be analyzed using older methods. As data volumes and data sources grow this problem is only getting worse.

Next week we have the pleasure of hearing from Verizon’s Ibrahim Itani, Executive Leader of Big Data Architecture and Technology. Ibrahim will talk about Verizon’s big data journey and how they use new technologies to solve problems with data at scale without data movement. Ibrahim will be joined by Ajay Anand, VP of Product Management at Kyvos Insights, and Sanjay Kumar, General Manager of Telecom at Hortonworks, who will share additional use cases that leverage big data architectures and interactive BI to reach their business goals. The talk will cover:

  • How to deal with the complexity of big data at rest and in motion
  • The differences between traditional OLAP and the more modern OLAP on Hadoop
  • How to put together a Hadoop architecture for self-service interactive BI
