Hadoop and Self-Service Analytics: Embracing Big Data

The maturity of Hadoop as a technology framework suitable for organizations, large and small, to economically store and process vast amounts of data is no longer a prediction, but rather a reality every IT leader understands. But that doesn’t mean Hadoop is done disrupting the data and analytics landscape.

Self-service analytics solutions capable of leveraging the massive processing and data discovery potential of distributed Hadoop clusters are ushering in a new era of data freedom for business users who are hungry to put data at the heart of their decision making process. With programming and query languages no longer a prerequisite skill for exploring Hadoop environments, organizations everywhere are waking up to the reality that even non-technical users can quickly and easily find insights in even the biggest of Hadoop data sets.

Attend this webinar to hear how IT groups are adjusting to this new breed of bold and curious data user and learn:
- How IT is shifting from data protector to data mentor
- Why business users are so data hungry and so un-afraid of Big Data
- What true self-service analytics can look like when paired with Hadoop
