Big Data Integration Workshop
Tue, Dec 2 — English — Vienna, VA  (22 spaces remaining)

Big data represents a major shift in the technology landscape. To tackle challenges related to the increased variety, velocity, and volume of information, companies are turning to Hadoop, NoSQL and Analytics Databases. If you are working with a big data environment or just starting to work on your big data strategy, this workshop is a great opportunity to get hands-on experience with Pentaho design patterns in big data.

The Pentaho Big Data Integration Workshop will teach you how to use Pentaho to implement three common big data uses with Cloudera, MongoDB and Vertica.  Pentaho provides data integration and an analytics platform that supports the entire big data lifecycle.  Using a combination of instructor-led presentations and hands-on exercises, the workshop teaches you Pentaho development methods for the following big data use cases:

1. EDW Optimization – offload and optimize your EDW with Cloudera

2. Streamlined Data Refinery – implement a streamlined data refinery with Cloudera and Vertica

3. Customer 360◦ View – create a single view of your customers with MongoDB

At the end of this full-day Pentaho workshop, data architects and developers will have hands-on experience with a complete, visual design environment to simplify and accelerate data preparation, integration, and analysis within a big data architecture.
