Morgan Stanley is driven by a relentless pursuit to improve operational efficiency and customer value with deeper insights from big data. A few years ago we started using Hadoop to mature our big data solution and scale our big data analytics projects.

Our team implemented an architecture for a big data design pattern common to a variety of big data problem classes. The architecture needed to support our big data deployments by leveraging commodity hardware, software, and resource skills to cost-effectively scale. To increase developer productivity on Hadoop using readily available skills and meet our corporate governance requirements Morgan Stanley selected a commercial data integration platform for Hadoop that also fit into the rest of our existing infrastructure.

In this session you’ll learn how Morgan Stanley matured their big data solution to adapt to technology trends, leverage crowd innovation, and tackle the challenges associated with big data overload and complexity.
