An Introduction to Big Data
A recording of this webcast held on 27 March 2012 is now available.
Big Data can mean a lot of things to a lot of people; but one thing we're sure of, it's the hottest thing to hit the IT landscape this Cloud (and ironically closely linked). In this chat you'll start with an introduction to Big Data so we're all on common ground as to what it is, how to spot it, and what the opportunities are. (Hint, be prepared to get shocked on Volume and more). With a strong foundation on what Big Data is, you'll be introduced to the IBM Big Data platform, what it looks like and its key components. In the final part of the chat, we'll dive into IBM's non-forked, embraced and extended Hadoop distribution (called InfoSphere BigInsights) and streaming technology (InfoSphere Streams), a tour of the Big Data platform features as it relates to these pillar components, and a get introduced to the toughest Big Data use case there is: text analytics and how this is just one areas where IBM is brining the "WOW" factor to Big Data.
Of course along the way you'll get introduced to clients that are using the platform and implicit use cases and be all set to investigate and appreciate not only what Big Data can do you for company, but how a partnership with IBM can make it happen that much faster with that much more confidence.
