At StampedeCon 2014, Stephen O’Sullivan (Silicon Valley Data Science) presented "Beyond a Big Data Pilot: Building a Production Data Infrastructure."
Creating a data architecture involves many moving parts. By examining the data value chain, from ingestion through to analytics, we will explain how the various parts of the Hadoop and big data ecosystem fit together to support batch, interactive and realtime analytical workloads.
By tracing the flow of data from source to output, we’ll explore the options and considerations for components, including data acquisition, ingestion, storage, data services, analytics and data management. Most importantly, we’ll leave you with a framework for understanding these options and making choices.
