Founder and President, Think Big, a Teradata Company
Hadoop has truly become ready for the enterprise. Because of this customers are deploying different architectural patterns including Data Lakes. During this session Ron will highlight some interesting trends in the adoption of Big Data Analytics inside the enterprise. Learn how Data Lakes are a key component to our customer's analytic architecture and what it takes to keep them well governed so you can trust the data. Once you have data in Hadoop, how do you allow analysts and data scientists to access data and spend their time being creative? And how do you foster creativity to use the new tools and techniques that are available? Ron will also talk about the key value add components that Teradata and Think Big bring to the Hadoop ecosystem to make deployment successful.
