About the Presentation
The hottest topic of discussion around any data related subject today is Big Data. We all know what is Big Data, the related technology wave it has brought in its wake Hadoop, Cassandra, NoSQL and more. This is where the confusion starts, what are these technologies and how do they fit your environment? How do you go about trying them out and how will you integrate them? Along with the technical issues, you also need to ponder on do I need quants to build algorithms or do I download them from open source? Who can guide me and how can I go about these tasks.
These slides are focused on presenting tips and techniques around the topic to discuss real life applicability of the technologies, success criteria evaluation etc.
