Apache Hadoop on Windows Azure’s Tim Mallilieu and Denny Lee to Present at Hadoop Summit 2012

The fifth annual Hadoop Summit 2012 (@hadoopsummit) conference, sponsored by Hortonworks, Yahoo! and Microsoft, inter alia, will take place 6/13 and 6/14/2012 at the San Jose Convention Center:

imageHortonworks and Yahoo! are proud to host the 5th annual Hadoop Summit. The two-day event will feature many of the leading thought leaders from the Apache Hadoop community who will showcase successful Hadoop use cases, share development and administration tips and tricks and educate organizations about how to leverage Apache Hadoop as a key component of their enterprise data platform. Hadoop Summit will also be an excellent network environment for developers, architects, administrators, data analysts, data scientists and vendors interested in advancing, extending or implementing Apache Hadoop.

Tim Mallilieu, Group Project Manager for Microsoft Big Data (@MicrosoftBI), will present an Unleash Insights on All Data with Microsoft Big Data session on 6/13/2012 at 2:25 to 3:05 PM PDT. From the Session Abstract:

imageDo you plan to extract insights from mountains of data, including unstructured data that is growing faster than ever? Attend this session to learn about Microsoft’s Big Data solution that unlocks insights on all your data, including structured and unstructured data of any size. Accelerate your analytics with a Hadoop service that offers deep integration with Microsoft BI and the ability to enrich your models with publicly available data from outside your firewall. Come and see how Microsoft is broadening access to Hadoop through dramatically simplified deployment, management and programming, including full support for JavaScript.

Denny Lee (@dennylee), Microsoft Principal Program Manager, and David Mariani, VP of Engineering for Klout, will describe How Klout is Changing the Landscape of Social Media with Hadoop and BI on 6/13/2012 at 3:35 PM PDT. From the Session Abstract:

imageIn this age of Big Data, data volumes grow exceedingly larger while the technical problems and business scenarios become more complex. Compounding these complexities, data consumers are demanding faster analysis to common business questions asked of their Big Data. This session provides concrete examples of how to address this challenge. We will highlight the use of Big Data technologies—including Hadoop and Hive —with classic BI systems such as SQL Server Analysis Services.

Session takeaways:
• Understand the architectural components surrounding Hadoop, Hive, Classic BI, and the Tier-1 BI ecosystem
• Get strategies for addressing the technical issues when working with extremely large cubes
• See how to address the technical issues when working with Big Data systems from the DBA perspective
