What you'll learn

  • Learn how application developers and companies considering Hadoop can benefit from ODPi
  • Description

    With so much variance across Hadoop distributions, ODPi was established to create standards for both Hadoop components and testing applications on those components. The Linux Foundation’s John Mertic offers an overview of ODPi and its benefits before IBM’s Berni Schiefer discusses applications such as IBM Big SQL that have been designed to work with ODPi-compliant Hadoop distributions. Join in to learn how application developers and companies considering Hadoop can benefit from ODPi.

    This session is sponsored by IBM.
