About this event

Large companies see an opportunity to replace expensive legacy data warehouse applications with Big Data technologies. But how realistic is the notion of switching from tried and true data warehouse implementations to something that's still maturing, and what are the pitfalls? What will a business user need to learn in order to adapt to the new platform?

Mark Kidwell of DesignMind will share experiences with companies like Intel and Intuit, who have seized on the Big Data opportunity, and what they encountered along the way. Nate Philips of Qubole will take us inside the big data world at Pinterest, where a third of employees use Big Data.

You’ll learn:

• How SQL-on-Hadoop lets users bring their standard client tools to Big Data • What the challenges are when migrating from traditional relational databases • How achieving self-service is a more realistic goal than ever • How to overcome the integration obstacles for analysts and IT users of Big Data • How Pinterest users interact with their data, which tools they use, and how they got to this level

We look forward to seeing you!
