NoSQL Road Show, Hadoop Tuesdays and Hadoop World

I’ll be taking our data management research out on the road in the next few months with a number of events, webinars and presentations.

On October 12 I’m taking part in the NoSQL Road Show Amsterdam, with Basho, Trifork and Erlang Solutions, where I’ll be presenting NoSQL, NewSQL, Big Data…Total Data – The Future of Enterprise Data Management.

The following week, October 18, I’m taking part in the Hadoop Tuesdays series of webinars, presented by Cloudera and Informatica, specifically talking about the Hadoop Ecosystem.

The Apache Hadoop ecosystem will again be the focus of attention on November 8 and 9, when I’ll be in New York for Hadoop World, presenting The Blind Men and the Elephant.

Then it’s back to NoSQL with two more stops on the NoSQL Road Show, in London on November 29 and Stockholm on December 1, where I’ll once again be presenting NoSQL, NewSQL, Big Data…Total Data – The Future of Enterprise Data Management.

I hope you can join us for at least one of these events, and am looking forward to learning a lot about NoSQL and Apache Hadoop adoption, interest and concerns.
