Join us at Cloudera Sessions – Chicago and learn how many of today’s major companies are relying on an enterprise data hub to transform their business and gain a competitive advantage.

Today’s leading companies need to be information-driven to succeed. To be information-driven means being able to leverage an unprecedented volume and variety of data, storing it cost-effectively, and delivering insights in a number of ways to a wide range of audiences, each with diverse requirements. Are you information-driven?

Getting Started with Hadoop
If you're interested in Hadoop and its capabilities, but you are not sure where to begin, this clinic is for you. Learn the basics of Hadoop, see how to spin up a development cluster in the cloud or on-premise, and start exploring ETL processing with SQL and other familiar tools.

Break the Barriers for Offloading Data to the enterprise data hub
Demand for quicker access to multiple integrated sources of data continues to rise. Immediate access to data stored in a variety of systems - such as mainframes, data warehouses, and data marts - is the competitive differentiation enterprises need to win in today's economy. Stop playing the waiting game and learn about offloading legacy data from practically any source in your enterprise environment to Hadoop. Leading organizations are already taking advantage of this architectural innovation to gain modern insights into the EDH, while reducing costs and propelling their businesses ahead of the competition. Are you tired of waiting? Don't let your architecture hold you back.

Hadoop Data and Access Security
The fundamentals and best practices of securing your Hadoop cluster are top of mind today. In this session, we will examine and explain the components, tools, and frameworks used in Hadoop for authentication, authorization, audit, and encryption of data and processes. See how the latest innovations can let you securely connect more data to more users within your organization.
