Big Data Hands on Workshop - October 8

Thursday, October 8 - 12:00pm - 5pm

Join the Evolving Solutions technical team and experts from IBM for a Big Data hands-on workshop. This workshop is all about using a Hadoop cluster to analyze data collected. We’ll dive in and use IBM tools to explore large data sets, use traditional SQL with a Hadoop cluster and try out Text Analytics capabilities to gain insights to unstructured data such as social media.

Attending this Big Data hands-on workshop is a great opportunity to better understand how to get business value from Hadoop in your business without having to build your own lab.

We recommend attending this workshop if you are: a business intelligence or analytics team members, an application developers interested in big data, part of the technical team for marketing or part of a data warehouse team. Or, anyone else interested in learning about analyzing large amounts of data in simplified processes.

Please bring your laptop for this workshop.  We will provide an environment to get you started.  Questions about this can be directed to Amber Murphy at amber.m@evolvingsol.com.
