A session at Hadoop Summit 2012

Wednesday 13th June, 2012

2:25pm to 3:05pm (PST)

Hadoop is fast becoming an integral part of BI infrastructures to empower everyone in the business to affordably analyze large amounts of multi-structured data not previously possible with traditional OLAP or RDBMS technologies. This session will cover best practices for implementing Big Data Analytics directly on Hadoop. Topics will include architecture, integration and data exchange; self-service data exploration and analysis; openness and extensibility; the roles of Hive and the Hive metastore; integration with BI dashboards, reporting and visualization tools; using existing SAS and SPSS models and advanced analytics; ingesting data with Sqoop, Flume, and ETL.
