Join Us at the Big Data Conference Next Week

Are you planning on attending the Global Big Data Conference in Dallas? We hope you are. Two of our executive chimps, Flip Kromer and Eddie Satterly, will take the stage at the Global Big Data Conference’s Big Data Bootcamp next week to present on Storm and other big data tools. This conference, targeted to both technical and non-technical people who want to understand the emerging world of big data, takes place from May 9-11 — and registration is still open.

Screen Shot 2014 05 05 at 12.50.58 PM Join Us at the Big Data Conference Next Week

Here’s a breakdown of the schedule:

Selecting the Right Big Data Tool for the Right Job, and Making It Work for You
Eddie Satterly | Day 1 – Friday May 9, 2014 | 5-6PM 
Join our CTO, Eddie Satterly, as he speaks on the various types of big data solutions—from open-source to commercial solutions—and the specific selection criteria and profiles of each. As in all technology areas, each solution has its own sweet spots and challenges either in CAP theorem, ACID compliance, performance or scalability. This class will provide an overview of the technical tradeoffs for the list of solutions in technical terminology. Once the technical tradeoffs are reviewed, Eddie will review the cost and value of open-source solutions versus commercial software, and the trade-offs that folks must take to choose one over the other. The next phase will go into great detail on use cases for specific solutions based on real-world experience.
See more details HERE.

Deathmarch Through the Internals of Storm + Trident
Flip Kromer | Day 2 – Saturday May 10, 2014 | 5-6PM
Join our co-founder, Flip Kromer, as he deep-dives into Storm+Trident, the incredibly exciting open-source framework for streaming analytics. Storm enables scalable high-throughput processing by programs in your language of choice, on distributed networks of commodity servers. Trident extends Storm to allow exactly-once processing, enabling large-scale aggregations and advanced analytics in real-time. You’ll leave knowing enough about the Storm+Trident internals to be able to reason about your programs’ performance and confidently bring it to production.
See more details HERE.

Global Big Data Conference is offering a 3 day extensive bootcamp on Big Data. This is a fast paced, vendor agnostic, technical overview of the Big Data landscape. No prior knowledge of databases or programming is assumed. Big Data Bootcamp is targeted towards both technical and non-technical people who want to understand the emerging world of Big Data, with a specific focus on Hadoop, NoSQL & Machine Learning. Attendees will experience real Hadoop clusters and the latest Hadoop distributions.

Strata Santa Clara Recap + What Comes Next

Another year, another great Strata! Team Infochimps is back in Austin, Texas, but hopefully you stopped by and grabbed a t-shirt at our booth before you left. We saw a few familiar faces and made a lot of new friends — but in case you weren’t at Strata, here’s what you may have missed…

We got a lot of questions about our workshop, where you can meet with our experienced data scientists to learn key Big Data concepts and best practices. We’re offering personalized recommendations for each workshopper and sharing the secrets of success we’ve seen from other businesses. If you missed us at the booth or haven’t heard about it yet, you can learn more and request a workshop here too.

Many of you asked about our second annual “CIOs & Big Data: What Your IT Team Wants You to Know” report. Last year’s report showed some interesting takeaways — that 55 percent of Big Data projects aren’t completed, with 58 percent citing “inaccurate scope” as the reason for failure. We launched the questionnaire again this year and would love to hear your thoughts on what you want your CIO to know about Big Data. It only takes 10 minutes, and you can win cool prizes like an Amazon gift card

Many of you were interested in the data sheets we had at the booth too, but if you missed it you can still check out our adoption lifecycle data sheet and our solution overview online.

On a fun note, we hosted a Big Data Mixer, co-sponsored by Silicon Valley Data Science and Pacific Crest Securities, and we had a great time picking the brains of other industry pioneers. More than 120 of the best and brightest in Big Data joined in for food, drinks, and good conversation. We took a lot of photos that night (see a few teaser photos below), and you can see the entire album (around 500 total) here.

Overall we had a blast at this year’s Strata Santa Clara! We hope you had a great time at Strata too, and we can’t wait to see you at the next one in New York. Until then, I’ll leave you with another awesome photo from our mixer featuring a couple of our chimps, Tim Gasper and Cameron Peek. Oh and if you can think of a good caption, I’m all ears.
