Big Data Developer Day: Raleigh

August 28, 2014 - 9:00 a.m. ET, Raleigh, NC | Big Data Developer Days

Open source Apache Hadoop is a great framework for distributed processing of large data sets. But there’s a difference between "playing" with big data and solving real problems. The reality is that Hadoop alone might not be enough.

Experience IBM’s enterprise-class Hadoop product, InfoSphere BigInsights, which enhances open source Hadoop with required enterprise capabilities including: analytics, visualization, security, standard SQL, enterprise HBase and developer/admin tools. Learn about the role of big data in motion, big data exploration and more. The morning session will include interactive big data use case discussions, an overview of what big data really is and live demonstrations of key big data components (big data at rest, big data in motion). In the afternoon, get hands-on with big data using InfoSphere BigInsights Quick Start Edition and InfoSphere Streams Quick Start Edition with guidance from development experts. Get more information on the meetup and be sure to join us!
