SAS Best Practices
Optimized. Efficient. Agile. Reliable. Stable. Structured.
Everything that is important to a technology geek and everything the world of big data seems to elude. Traveling through the world of big data can seem like a daunting journey through uncharted territory.
This session will provide you - the weary, travelling technical intellectual - with a guide to the unstructured, unfamiliar, and ever-changing world of big data, Hadoop and open source software.
We will look at the components and tools in the open source Hadoop ecosystem that are needed for storing, managing and acting on data of all shapes, sizes and types.
We will also explore the pluses and minuses of integrating open source software in your traditional, proprietary environment.
