Data is the fuel for strategic differentiation in today’s market. However, legacy systems weren’t designed to keep up with the influx of data from a hyper-connected world, nor can they  support the real-time insights that provide value to the business. Companies must evolve or risk being left behind by competitors that are implementing machine learning and artificial intelligence or migrating applications and infrastructure to the cloud. Find out how a modern platform for data science, analytics, operations, and real-time applications can transform data into your most valuable business asset.

1:45pm - Breakout Sessions (Track A: Cloudera in the Cloud; Track B: Modernizing BI & Analytics)

Track A: Cloudera in the Cloud

From speeding deployment times, to lowering TCO, to driving greater workforce agility, cloud infrastructure can deliver a number of benefits back to your business. In this session, we will cover how to run your Hadoop workloads on public cloud, optimizing for cluster transience, elasticity, object-store integration, and flexible pricing.

Track B: Modernizing BI & Analytics

Business intelligence and analytics continue to be the lifeblood of business. But many enterprises are stuck in a pattern of simply trying to keep up with the status quo, instead of shifting for the future to take on new and changing data types, get real-time insights, and optimize for the cloud. In this session, we will cover the key drivers for modernizing the analytic database, the technologies that bring high-performance SQL to big data, and how you can ultimately get more value from your data all at a lower cost.

 

2:40pm - Breakout Sessions (Track A: Data Science in the Enterprise; Track B: Cloudera in the Cloud)

Track A: Data Science in the Enterprise

Self-service data science is easier said than delivered, especially on Apache Hadoop. Most organizations struggle to balance the diverging needs of the data scientist, data engineer, operator, and architect. This talk will cover the underlying root causes and introduce new capabilities being developed to make self-service data science a reality.

Track B: Cloudera in the Cloud

From speeding deployment times, to lowering TCO, to driving greater workforce agility, cloud infrastructure can deliver a number of benefits back to your business. In this session, we will cover how to run your Hadoop workloads on public cloud, optimizing for cluster transience, elasticity, object-store integration, and flexible pricing.
