On Friday, January 23, 2015, MapR vice president of Product Marketing, Steve Wooledge, and vice president of Product Management, Tomer Shiran, will brief the BBBT on how hundreds of MapR customers use its Hadoop distribution to optimize their data architecture and make a significant impact on business as it happens.
Never has there been a bigger gap between hype and reality around Apache™ Hadoop® – what it is, common use cases, and requirements for companies to get real value. As Hadoop enters the mainstream for enterprise deployments, the attention is turning from the latest shiny object to fundamental data management and architecture principles which deliver on the promise of Hadoop.
“We look forward to sharing how our customers are getting tremendous value from Hadoop and engaging in a lively discussion with BBBT’s highly-regarded industry experts and thought leaders,” said Mr. Wooledge.
“There is much confusion and frustration surrounding Hadoop deployments,” said BBBT Founder, Claudia Imhoff. “I’m very interested to hear practical advice and relevant MapR case studies to dispel some of the myths and clarify when, where, and how companies should deploy this innovative and promising technology.”
