Are you architecting sensemaking solutions in the national security space? Register for 30 Jan Federal Big Data Forum sponsored by Cloudera

By

big-data-620x400Friends at Cloudera are lead sponsors and coordinators of a new Big Data Forum focused on Apache Hadoop. The first, which will be held 30 January 2013 in Columbia Maryland, will be focused on lessons learned of use to the national security community. This is primarily for practitioners and leaders fielding real working Big Data solutions on Apache Hadoop and related technologies.  I’ve seen a draft agenda, it includes a lineup of the nation’s greatest Big Data technologists, including the chairman of the Apache Software foundation and creator of Hadoop, Lucene and Nutch Doug Cutting.

This event is intentionally being focused on real practitioners and others who can benefit from lessons learned by those who have created/fielded real enterprise solutions.  This will fill up fast.  Please mark you calendar now and register right away.  To register see: http://info.cloudera.com/federal-big-data-hadoop-forum.html

  • Real-time SQL queries against petabytes of data
  • Advancing management and monitoring across the platform
  • Secure storage and retrieval of petabytes of key/value data
  • How Data Scientists are using Hadoop to tell stories with data

In addition, you will hear from Hadoop Creator, Apache Software Foundation Chairman, and Cloudera Chief Architect Doug Cutting on new and upcoming projects and what you can expect from Cloudera and the Hadoop Community.
