About the Webinar

This webinar will look at popular applications of Big Data technology, particularly analytics and the wide variety of technologies that can be brought to bear on Big Data problems. The speakers, who have each worked with Big Data for more than two decades, will set the scene by describing commonly used workflows that use conventional and NoSQL repositories, extract/translate/load and analysis tools.

They will then describe a new approach to extracting value from Big Data that combines existing tools, such as relational databases and Hadoop, with a distributed graph database and advanced visual analytics to create a highly extensible Big Data Connection Platform.

Note! All attendees will be entered to win a free pass to the NoSQL Now! Conference & Expo in San Jose, CA August 21-23. Must attend to be entered to win.
