Getting Started with Hadoop
Dan Kernaghan, Cloudera Systems Engineer
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.

Advanced Analytics
David Millman, Cloudera Systems Engineer
Organizations looking to gain actionable insights from their vast amounts of structured and unstructured data are embracing advanced analytics at an increasing rate. As they look to scale out their advanced analytics practice to incorporate more data and to provide access to more business users, they run into barriers or limitations from existing solutions.

This session provides an introduction to advanced analytics from a data practitioner’s point of view and how you can leverage Cloudera’s enterprise data hub (EDH) to use all your data, do more with your data, and ultimately delivers insights sooner.

Data Warehouse Optimization
Kevin Worrell, Cloudera Systems Engineer
Data warehouses have been a critical part of the data management infrastructure for decades. Yet today, data warehouses and their surrounding infrastructure strain to keep up as organizations grapple with more types and greater volumes of data. Hear how you can shift appropriate data and workloads to Hadoop to reduce costs, increase performance, and analyze larger and more diverse data sets.

Steve Totman, Director of Strategy at Syncsort
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.
