Rick van der Lans

Big data, analytical database servers, Hadoop, NoSQL, MapReduce, and appliances are all immensely popular terms in the IT industry today. However, for most organizations the questions are, "How mature are all these new technologies? Are they worthy replacements for the more traditional SQL products? How should they be incorporated in the existing data warehouse architecture?"

This seminar discusses and explains these new data storage technologies clearly and explains why and how they can be relevant for any organization. It is intended for anyone who has to stay up to date and implement the new developments, including data warehouse designers, business intelligence experts, database specialists, database experts, consultants, and technology planners.
