Extract Value From Unstructured Data With MapReduce
Big Data Tuesday Webinar
Featuring Big Data Pioneers from Teradata Aster, Cloudera
Interest in evaluating or deploying Hadoop and other MapReduce-based technologies is higher than ever. A key driving factor has been the potential for an organization to extract greater value from the massive volume of unstructured or semi-structured data such as log, XML, binaries, documents, industry standards and other non-relational data. Ad-hoc, custom coding approach in managing these types of data is not only inefficient, but costly and risky as deployment expands.
There is a better alternative – adopting an enterprise approach that combines the unique strengths of technology options. With a purpose-built, enterprise-grade data management infrastructure, your organization can quickly perform high-volume analytics, sentiment analysis and other advanced analytics to uncover new patterns and adjust to changing business conditions.
Join Big Data pioneers Tasso Argyros - Teradata Aster, and Amr Awadallah - Cloudera to learn:
- Why you need a new approach to manage unstructured, complex data
- How to take advantage of the power of MapReduce
- Pitfalls to avoid when architecting for optimum data flows across Big Data technologies
- Use cases and benefits to expect for the combination of technologies
