Ready for Primetime? What Enterprise-ready Really Means

Sponsored Sessions Ballroom H

The Apache Hadoop platform has become a critical aspect of modern enterprise data warehousing strategies for many commercial, government and research organizations looking to analyze their data for actionable intelligence. Early adopters have already begun to leverage Hadoop to solve truly big challenges, like how to make energy use more sustainable and how to more effectively treat diseases. However, despite Hadoop’s potential to power big competitive advantages, many traditional enterprises have not yet adopted this powerful technology. Now in it’s sixth year, Hadoop is reaching maturity and is poised to more aggressively take increasingly wider workloads within mainstream enterprises.

In this session, Cloudera VP of Product Charles Zedlewski will discuss how Hadoop is evolving to address enterprise compliance, security and performance concerns, as well as how it complements legacy enterprise data warehousing infrastructure to deliver new levels of insight, performance and efficiency. The discussion will offer insights on new advancements to the platform and enterprise successes based on real-world use cases .
