Wednesday, February 20, 2013, 1:00 PM Eastern

Webcast Overview

Big Data can mean a lot of things to a lot of people; but one thing we're sure of, it's the hottest thing to hit the IT landscape. In this chat you'll get a comprehensive introduction to Big Data. You'll learn how to spot Big Data, it's characteristics, and what the opportunities are. (Hint, be prepared to get shocked on Volume and more). You'll get a taste of Hadoop, but realize Big Data is so much more. The speaker will also share top things to consider in the Big Data world that's often overlooked (governance, integration, search, and more). Consider this: if you Google search 'What is Big Data', you will get almost 1 billion hits!!! If you attend this session, you'll never have to Google search this phrase again.
