Introduction to Big Data and Hadoop – Technologies overview, best practices, and how to get started
Presented by Cloudera, Appfluent, and Informatica

How does your company plan to turn the unprecedented volume, variety, and velocity of data you gather every day into information that gives you a strategic edge? Hadoop, the de facto standard for storing and processing Big Data, can save money and increase efficiency — but only when it's used correctly. Otherwise, it can only complicate your data strategy.

Whether you're an architect, a business/project manager and leader, a data steward, or a developer, you need to understand Big Data and Hadoop in order to participate in effective discussions about them. In this all-day technical session designed for Informatica PowerCenter users, we'll discuss how Big Data and Hadoop affect the enterprise data warehouse and how best to incorporate Hadoop into your company's Big Data strategy.

You will learn:

  • Common terminologies used in Big Data
  • Technologies, tools, and use cases associated with Hadoop
  • How to identify and qualify the most appropriate jobs for Hadoop
  • Options and best practices for using Hadoop to improve processes and increase efficiency
