When it comes to talking about big data technology, there's a big bowl of alphabet soup to digest: noSQL, EDW, HBASE, ETL, BI, ERP, JAQL and many others. Don't "Pig" out on the soup to the point where you break out in "Hives"—join us as we discuss the technology issues and help you understand what's needed to integrate big data. Our special guest for the chat is John Myers (@johnlmyers44), senior analyst for EMA’s business intelligence and data warehousing practice; moderating the chat will be @IBMbigdata. You can follow along—and join the discussion using the hashtag #BigDataMgmt.
