Join us at Cloudera Sessions – Houston 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.

Data Warehouse Optimization
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.

Advanced Analytics
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.
