What's the Big Deal About Big Data?

Sep 29, 2011

CJ Barton & William Caroll

Vertica, an HP Company

There's a lot of buzz around the topic of Big Data today. Many companies are beginning to uncover the once-hidden value of this data and discovering that it is giving them a competitive edge in the marketplace.

  • But what exactly is Big Data?
  • How is it different than the data currently stored in our data warehouses and marts?
  • What are the technologies that will enable us to exploit Big Data?
  • What changes need to be made to our data architectures to support it?
  • How are businesses using the intelligence being extracted from Big Data to their advantage?
  • How is Big Data impacting the trend toward self-service BI?

Topics to be covered include:

  • Enabling technologies like Hadoop and MapReduce
  • Data Virtualization
  • MPP, shared nothing architectures
  • NoSQL, column data stores
  • Self-service BI tools
  • Case studies
