Data Summit to Present Deep-Dive Big Data Workshops

The second annual Data Summit 2015 conference at the New York Hilton Midtown will include two tracks of workshops on Monday, May 11, enabling a deep dive into important big data technologies.

Providing a unique event where the top corporations, government agencies and public institutions gather to learn about the leading technologies and strategies for succeeding in our increasingly data-driven world, Data Summit offers a comprehensive educational experience designed to guide attendees through the key issues in data management and analysis.

The conference kicks off Monday, May 11, with a "Hadoop Fundamentals" workshop presented by Pythian CTO Alex Gorbachev. The workshop will explore the basics of Hadoop, including the Hadoop Distributed File System, MapReduce, and the budding ecosystem of Hadoop software projects, as well as reveal best practices for installing and configuring Hadoop, managing its performance, and developing big data applications.

In addition, Joe Caserta, president and founder of Caserta Concepts, will present an "Introduction to Data Science workshop." While the role of data scientist has been described as the "sexiest" job of the 21st century, it nonetheless requires mastery of some commonplace elements of data analytics. This workshop cover concepts, such as SQL and NoSQL, MapReduce, Hadoop, data mining, machine learning, and data visualization.

Additional Monday workshop sessions will include "Virtualizing Your Database for Performance" and "Moving to the Hybrid Cloud."

Following the Monday workshops, Data Summit will provide an intense 2-day immersion on Tuesday, May 12, and Wednesday, May 13, into the key technologies and strategies for becoming a data-driven business.
