Strata+Hadoop London 2016

London here we come… starting June 1 through June 3, we will be at the SOLD OUT Strata+Hadoop World at ExCel LondonSHW london banner

We will be in stand #408 over the three days and on Tuesday, June 2 at 1455, Sebastian Darrington, CTO for Big Data and Analytics in EMEA will be presenting “Developing a Successful Big Data Strategy”. This session will take place in Capital Suite 7 and here is an abstract for the session:

Many businesses have undertaken Big Data projects, but for every successful project, there are dozens that have failed or have stagnated. Customers are realizing they need to understand both the business outcomes and technology in order to target their goals more accurately. They need to tackle the challenges of Hadoop at scale, the maturity of the organization, and how it affects their strategy. Whether you are an innovator, a late adopter, or somewhere in between, join us as we explore the reasons why such projects hit obstacles, what typical challenges are experienced, and how to overcome them along your own Big Data journey.SHW London booth
