MapReduce, Hadoop, and other “NoSQL” big data approaches opened opportunities for data scientists in every industry to develop new data-intensive applications. But what about the more traditional SQL users or analysts? How can they unlock insights through standard business intelligence (BI) tools or ANSI SQL access?

In this session, you will learn about Teradata Aster Analytics Portfolio which is the industry’s largest library of pre-built MapReduce functions based on patented SQL-MapReduce® framework that extends SQL for big data analytics. We will discuss how SQL-MapReduce® based functions can be used by business analysts through familiar tools on a variety of data sources. The session will cover how native R programs can be utilized in the Teradata Aster Discovery Platform. Using a combination of SQL-MapReduce functions, we will walk through use cases of pattern analysis on retail e-commerce data sets.
