Slides from the Live Webcast on Oct. 16, 2012
The power of Hadoop cannot be denied, as evidenced by the fact that all the biggest closed-source vendors in the world of data management have embraced this open-source project with virtually open arms. But Hadoop is not a data warehouse, nor ever will it likely be. Rather, it's ideal role for now is to augment traditional data warehousing and business intelligence. As an adjunct, Hadoop provides an amazing mechanism for storing and analyzing Big Data. The key is to manage expectations and move forward carefully.
Check out this episode of The Briefing Room to hear veteran Analyst Mark Madsen of Third Nature, who will explain how, where, when and why to leverage the open-source elephant in the enterprise. He'll be briefed by Jim Walker of Hortonworks who will tout his company's vision for the future of Big Data management. He'll provide details on their data platform and how it can be used to complete the picture of information management. He'll also discuss how the Hortonworks partner network can help companies get big value from Big Data.
