TDWI Speaker: Colin White, President and Founder of BI Research

Date: Tuesday, March 24, 2015

Time: 9:00 a.m. PT, 12:00 p.m. ET

Webinar Abstract

As the volume and business uses of data continue to expand, there is growing interest in leveraging cloud computing for data warehouse and business analytics projects. Responding to this interest, both established and new vendors are offering cloud-based Hadoop services for blending, managing, and processing large volumes of both traditional and new sources of data.

When is the cloud the right approach? How does the cloud impact important issues such as performance, cost, and deployment time? How can you tell the cloud services apart? There are many vendors on the market and their messages sound similar. What’s really under the hood?

This Webinar will discuss:

  • Pros and cons of Hadoop-as-a-Service 
  • Key use cases for when to go to the cloud 
  • How organizations can match their business requirements to the most appropriate offering
  • Case study of how one company decided to go to the cloud, and what benefits they found there
