The Hadoop industry is truly in an exciting transformational stage as organizations extract powerful insights from their big-data assets. Hadoop is central to many IBM customers’ strategic big-data analytics initiatives. We are well-positioned to further accelerate customers’ most strategic business imperatives that require advanced analytics. Our highly scalable Hadoop solution platform, BigInsights, provides runtime engines, machine-learning libraries, text analytics tools, R programming interfaces and other capabilities that enable organizations in many industries to gain more data-driven more analytic insights more rapidly across more areas of the business.
With all of that in mind, we encourage you to come meet with us at the upcoming Hadoop Summit 2015 in San Jose, California. Of course, IBM will be there in force, as in previous years at this exciting, content-rich industry forum. The San Jose event, now in its eighth year, is the largest Hadoop Summit in North America. A tremendous learning and networking experience for big data professionals, the Hadoop Summit features a great collection of hardcore technical use cases, as well as tips and tricks from many of the most influential thought leaders in the big-data analytics industry.
IBM is a platinum sponsor of Hadoop Summit 2015, and we will have a heavy presence both on the show floor and also in the technical tracks. At the San Jose event, June 9-11, IBM sessions and presenters will include:
- Query Federations on Data Lakes: Architecture and Best Practices – Jo Ramos
- NoSQL needs some SQL – Scott Gray
- The challenges of SQL on Hadoop – Scott Gray
- 50 Shades of SQL – Seagate Technology and IBM
On the show floor, IBM will be promoting our offerings around the theme of “Hadoop for the Enterprise.” We will focus on the open nature of our Hadoop offering, BigInsights v4.0, on the multiple deployment methods that we provide for Hadoop, and on the world-class analytics that customers run on their Hadoop clusters. At the Hadoop Summit, we will have an interactive demo that shows how customers can gain valuable insight from their data in Hadoop, such as social-media sentiment from Twitter feeds, by leveraging BigInsights and its integrated analytics tools, such as BigSQL and Spark, that integrate out of the box with our solution.
Come meet with us at the event and we’ll bring you up to speed on what capabilities we offer currently in BigInsights 4.0. We’ll also provide you with a look-ahead on where we’re going with the evolution of Hadoop within IBM’s expanding big-data analytics solution portfolio. One key recent event in this regard was in February, when IBM launched BigInsights 4.0, introducing our innovative persona based packaging (analyst, Data Scientist and Enterprise Management). At that same time, IBM announced that we are a founding member of the Open Data Platform (ODP) initiative, a new industry association that’s driving collaboration, innovation, and standardization across Hadoop and big data technologies. In April, we and our ODP partners announced that we have harmonized our respective Hadoop solutions around that common ODP core of Apache Hadoop 2.6 (including HDFS, YARN, and MapReduce) and Apache Ambari.
