It was invaluable to have two global thought leaders in the big data world present at our final Big Data Analytics Enterprise Architect Forum for 2015.

Mike Ames, Senior Director responsible for Data Science & Emerging Technologies at SAS Global Headquarters discussed:

  • What to consider when deploying SAS with Hadoop and Spark
  • How (and why) SAS is embracing and collaborating with the open source community

Ted Dunning, Chief Application Architect at MapR USA will be focussing on machine learning:

  • Defining what machine learning is, where it’s been used and what it’s achieved
  • The lessons learned (good and bad) from case studies of early adopters
