In recent years, Apache™ Hadoop® has emerged from humble beginnings to disrupt the traditional disciplines of information management. As with all technology innovation, hype is rampant, and data professionals are easily overwhelmed by diverse opinions and confusing messages.
Even seasoned practitioners sometimes miss the point, claiming for example that Hadoop replaces relational databases and is becoming the new data warehouse. It is easy to see where these claims originate since both Hadoop and Teradata® systems run in parallel, scale up to enormous data volumes and have shared-nothing architectures. At a conceptual level, it is easy to think they are interchangeable, but the differences overwhelm the similarities. This session will shed light on the differences and help architects, engineering executives, and data scientists identify when to deploy Hadoop and when it is best to use MPP relational database in a data warehouse, discovery platform, or other workload-specific applications.
Two of the most trusted experts in their fields, Steve Wooledge, VP of Product Marketing from Teradata and Jim Walker of Hortonworks will examine how big data technologies are being used today by practical big data practitioners.
