Forthcoming Webinar: Get Down to Serious Business with Hadoop

On Wednesday, July 17, at 11:00am ET / 8:00am PT, I’ll be taking part in a webinar in association with MarkLogic on the subject of Hadoop.

As we’ve stated a few times, we believe that the flexibility of Apache Hadoop is one of its biggest assets – enabling organizations to generate value from data that was previously considered too expensive to be stored and processed in traditional databases – but it also results in “Hadoop” meaning different things to different people.

The result is that organizations still struggle over which Hadoop ecosystem components to adopt in order to obtain the greatest value, which application workloads might be suitable for deployment on Hadoop, and how to deploy Hadoop in conjunction with existing relational and non-relational databases.

On the webinar I’ll be providing an overview of the current state of the Hadoop ecosystem, geographic adoption, use cases, while MarkLogic’s Director of Product Management Justin Makeig to will provide an introduction to complementary technology from MarkLogic that can help your organization achieve real-time analysis, transactional data updates, integrity, granular security, and full-text search.
