Big data visionaries from Cisco, EMC, Continuuity, VMware, LinkedIn, Facebook and more to reveal how they are using big data to drive business

If there’s one big Hadoop theme at Structure:Data, it’s that people shouldn’t be asking ‘What’s next after Hadoop?’ but rather, ‘What will Hadoop become next?’

“If there’s one big Hadoop theme at Structure:Data, it’s that people shouldn’t be asking ‘What’s next after Hadoop?’ but rather, ‘What will Hadoop become next?’,” says Derrick Harris, senior writer for GigaOM and chair of Structure:Data 2013. “We’ll attempt to answer that question as we examine how leading companies are using Hadoop.”

In just 10 years, Hadoop has evolved from a Yahoo! search engine fix to a general-purpose computing platform that is poised to be the foundation for the next generation of data-based applications. Harris’s four-part series on Hadoop provides a primer on the company’s history, future and most promising applications. In a recent GigaOM podcast, he explained why Hadoop is here to stay.

In addition to panels and presentations, Structure:Data attendees will have access to more than 16 workshops, plus two mapping sessions led by GigaOM Research analysts on cloud databases and data marketplaces. Attendees will also receive a complimentary GigaOM Research Sector RoadMap™ report on next-generation databases.

A limited number of tickets for Structure:Data are still available. Follow @GigaOM on Twitter (#dataconf) to stay up to date on speakers, sessions and special events.
