What you'll learn

  • Explore IBM and Cloudera's innovative AI and ML solutions


Having bread without butter or rice without a curry doesn’t seem enticing, right? In a similar way, you can’t have a successful data lake without having a proven analytics platform that can scale to big data workloads, with built-in security and governance. IBM’s Data and AI Division offers everything from a data virtualization platform that can bring AI and ML to your virtual data lake. If you still fancy building traditional data lakes, IBM BigIntegrate offers a perfect data stage platform with a brand-new IBM BigQuality engine built from the ground up on Spark. And if you’re looking for the best SQL engine for Hadoop or Spark, look no further than IBM Db2 BigSQL.

Satheesh Bandaram and Saumitra Buragohain detail how IBM and Cloudera are advancing AI and ML for their customers with solutions to build on-premises or cloud-based secure governed data lakes. Join them to hear how the two companies are driving innovation, process improvements, and better customer interactions for modern analytic applications.

This session is sponsored by IBM.
