Do you wonder how to process huge amounts of data in short amount of time? If yes, this session is for you! You will learn why Apache Hadoop and Streams is the core framework that enables storing, managing and analyzing of vast amounts of data. You will learn the idea behind Hadoop's famous map-reduce algorithm and why it is at the heart of solutions that process massive amounts of data with flexible workloads and software based scaling. We explore how to go beyond Hadoop with both real-time and batch analytics, usability, and manageability. For practical examples, we will use IBM InfoSphere BigInsights and Streams, which build on top of open source tooling when going beyond basics and scaling up and out is needed.
