Apache Hadoop is an innovative emerging technology causing CIOs to rethink their data architecture – making this an exciting time to be a “big data” technologist. The data warehouse like no other technology is most often compared to Hadoop. This raises some important questions. Will Hadoop replace the data warehouse? When is each more appropriate for different applications? How do they integrate? This tag-team presentation brings leaders in both Apache Hadoop and data warehousing – Hortonworks and Teradata – on the stage, to answer these questions by sharing their vision for the future of big data management and analytics. Even more, practical advice and examples will be shared for extracting the most value from your big data with a unified data architecture.
