Achieving Real Success with Hadoop

Amir Halfon (ScalingData)
Sponsored Rhinelander South
Slides:   1-PDF 

The flexibility of Apache Hadoop is one of its biggest assets, letting organizations generate value from data that was previously considered too expensive to be stored and processed in traditional databases. But organizations still struggle to get the greatest business value out of their Hadoop deployments. One key concern is how to avoid spending valuable time and resources on what ultimately turns out to be little more than a “science project.” due to performance and security concerns.

This is where NoSQL can bring substantial benefits – providing the flexibility and real time performance alongside the power of Hadoop to unlock real business value. This combination enables enterprises to tackle problems that are difficult to address using either relational databases or Hadoop on it’s own.

This Session will provide insights on:

  • The ecosystem of Hadoop technologies and their varying levels of adoption and maturity
  • The role of NoSQL in this ecosystem
  • Approaches for supporting both real-time and batch workloads in a Hadoop deployment
  • MarkLogic Enterprise NoSQL integration with Hadoop, and the key use cases it enables
  • Getting beyond traditional data warehousing with MarkLogic and Hadoop
  • MarkLogic’s roadmap for continued integration with Hadoop

This session is sponsored by MarkLogic
