“Apache Hadoop, Now and Beyond”, Jim Walker, Director of Product Marketing, Hortonworks
Hadoop is an open source project that allows you to gain insight from massive amounts of structured and unstructured data quickly and without significant investment. It is shifting the way many traditional organizations think of analytics and business models. While it is deigned to take advantage of cheap commodity hardware, it is also perfect for the cloud as it is built to scale up or down without system interruption. In this presentation, Jim Walker will provide an overview of Apache Hadoop and its current state of adoption in and out of the cloud.
