Kick Start Your Hadoop Journey
Webinar will teach businesses how to overcome obstacles associated with Hadoop adoption and application development
June 2015 Oak Brook, IL
Today, software development company michaels, ross & cole, ltd. (mrc) announces a joint webinar on June 25, 2015 with Splice Machine, creators of the only Hadoop RDBMS. This webinar will teach businesses how easily they can bypass many of the hurdles associated with Hadoop adoption and application development.
Hadoop is an open-source software framework for storing and processing large data sets. It stores data in a distributed fashion on clusters of commodity hardware, and is designed to scale up easily as needed. Hadoop helps businesses store and process massive amounts of data without purchasing expensive hardware.
However, unlocking Hadoop’s potential is a challenge. Businesses often lack the right skill sets to benefit from Hadoop, and struggle to deliver real-time access to their Hadoop data.
In the joint webinar, mrc and Splice Machine will demonstrate how their combined offerings help businesses capitalize on Hadoop’s benefits, while avoiding many common drawbacks. Attendees will learn how to:
- Gain real-time access to Hadoop data: Hadoop is known for its ability to store large amounts of data, but isn’t built for real-time data analysis. In this webinar, attendees will learn how quickly they can create real-time applications over their Hadoop data.
- Eliminate the latency of ETL data processing: The Extract, Transform, and Load (ETL) process is a prerequisite for data analytics. Data must be cleaned up, organized, and moved to the right places before it can be analyzed. But, as data volumes and sources expand, ETL becomes complex and time-consuming—hurting an organization’s ability to generate reports. In this webinar, attendees will learn how they can address the growing ETL issue with Hadoop.
- Bridge the Hadoop skills gap: Hadoop comes with a significant learning curve, often requiring new skillsets. Attendees will learn how to capitalize on Hadoop, without hiring (or becoming) a Hadoop expert.
"Many organizations lack the skills necessary to leverage the power of Hadoop," said Tyler Wassell, mrc's Manager of Software Development. "Our joint webinar with Splice Machine will help businesses understand how new technologies can help them move past this hurdle and build applications over Hadoop data—using the skills they already have in-house."###
