Everything you ever wanted to know about big data in 180 minutes, with coffee

On the afternoon of Tuesday May 14 at Enterprise Search Europe in London I will be running a mini-workshop on the Challenges of Big Data.

The format is a little different to the presentations and webinars we usually get involved with, but the three-hour timescale gives us the opportunity to do a really deep dive into the trend of big data, its associated technologies, and the potential impact on the data management landscape. As such the session could effectively be titled ‘everything you ever wanted to know about big data in 180 minutes’.

Attendees will have exclusive access to our latest thoughts and concepts in this fast-moving space. The workshop is aimed at anyone with an interest in the concept of big data, its related technologies and how it will affect their business, and will give you:

  • A thorough, hype-free introduction to the concept of ‘big data’
  • An overview of the technical, business and cultural trends that are changing the way enterprises store, process and analyse data
  • An understanding of how ‘big data’ technologies complement and/or compete with traditional data warehousing and analytics technologies
  • Examples of enterprise deployments of Hadoop and related best practices
  • An overview of how search and machine-learning technologies relate to ‘big data’

There will also be coffee 🙂

I will also be providing An Overview of Big Data during the main Enterprise Search Europe Conference Programme on Thursday at 9am, but those who attend the workshop on Tuesday will get the really good stuff.
