Big Data Integration Webinar Series

May 6, 2013

line-chartDo you have a big data integration plan? Are you implementing big data? Big data, big data, big data. Did we say big data? EVERYONE is talking about big data…..but what are they really talking about? When you pull back the marketing curtains and look at the technology, what are the main elements and important true and tried trends that you should know?

Pentaho is hosting a four-part technical series on the key elements and trends surrounding big data. Each week of the series will bring a new, content-rich webinar helping organizations find the right track to understand, recognize value and cost-effectively deploy big data analytics.

All webinars will be held 8 am PT / 11 am ET / 16:00 GMT. To register follow the links below and for more information contact Rob Morrison at rmorrison at pentaho dot com.

1) Enterprise Data Warehouse Optimization with Hadoop Big Data

With exploding data volumes, increasing costs of the Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) and a raising demand for high-performance analytics, companies have no choice but to reduce the strain on their data warehouse and leverage Hadoop’s economies of scale for data processing. In the first webinar of the series, learn how using Hadoop to optimize the EDW gives IT professionals processing power, advanced archiving and the ability to easily add new data sources.

3) Reducing the Implementation Efforts of Hadoop, NoSQL and Analytical Databases

Pentaho’s November Euro-Trip!

November 2, 2012

With October coming to an end, Pentaho is getting ready for a Euro-trip!  Our October events concluded in New York City this past week at O’Reilly’s Strata Conference.

November’s forecast is Big Data and long flights.  First stop is “Big Data Days 2012” in Munich, Germany on November 6-7.  This is a great conference for networking and is focused on linking together business and IT concepts.  Do we have a booth?

We have one stop on our tour in the U.S. of A. – in the hometown of Pentaho’s headquarters, Orlando, FL., for TDWI.  TDWI’s World Conference Series will be held at The Renaissance Orlando Hotel at SeaWorld November 11-16.  TDWI promises an in depth look at the emerging trends for the upcoming year in Big Data.  If you are at TDWI don’t forget to stop by our booth (rumor has it there are some t-shirts left over from Strata).

From there we take a short trip to Zurich for DW2012  on November 12-13.  In its twelfth year, DW2012 is a great place to meet leaders in Big Data and BI – but be warned, the conference is hosted in German, so if you don’t “sprechen sie Deutsch” you might want to hire a translator.  Do we have a booth?

Next stop – Milan, Italy.  The Big Data Congress on November 22nd is a free conference that will be “themed conversations” between big data solutions suppliers and users.  Not only is it going to be greatly informative, it is free, and in Milan – how many more reasons do you need to attend?

Finally, we wrap up the month in London for Enterprise Business Intelligence (EBI) 2012 on November 28th at the Russell Hotel.  Pentaho is proud to be a silver sponsor of the event put together by Whitehall Media featuring the leading BI world.

To register for any of the events, or for more information visit Pentaho’s event page.

If you are attending any of these events and would like to set-up an in person meeting with Pentaho, contact us!
