Hadoop v2 – The Intersection of Analytics and the Enterprise
President, Emerging Technologies Division, EMC
A rising tide of information is being collected, processed, and analyzed by enterprises around the world, but this flood of data brings as many challenges as it does solutions. As companies become more data driven in a wide range of activities, they will need their production big data implementations to meet common enterprise requirements such as high performance, scalability, availability, security, and compliance. Underlying the databases and analytics engines, other parts of the technology stack are critical components for providing these qualities, not the least of which involves the choice of storage platforms. The storage systems can make or break a big data implementation. EMC is a leader in purpose built storage for Enterprise ready Hadoop. Come hear EMC’s vision and strategy in transforming companies into data-driven enterprises using Hadoop based technologies and best practices.

0.5%: The Margin Between Good and Great, and How to Find It
As sports have become high stakes, global competitions, the performance margins that differentiate good,great and legendary have shrunk dramatically. The importance of finding tiny advantages is greater than ever. Where Moneyball was once a novelty, now it is the norm in every sport as data is mined to find those vanishingly small advantages. And yet, even as sports are awash in data, much of it is applied to surprisingly little effect. David Epstein will discuss the importance of combining big data with cutting edge science about expertise to emerge with “small data”: the kind that reveals where those tiny advantages are hiding.
