Managing Big Data Analytics in the Cloud at Data Summit 2018

As data continues to grow, enterprises have a wide variety of solutions to choose from when it comes to storing, analyzing, and making sense of the constant stream of information.

The modern world of analytics is filled with cloud technologies that offer convenient, agile, and feature-rich approaches for running new analytic applications without requiring new investments in hardware, operating systems, or IT infrastructure.

Scott Jeschonek, principal program manager at Microsoft provides insights into how IT pros are leveraging the resources of the compute cloud during his Data Summit 2018 presentation titled, “Managing the Analytic Deluge in the Cloud.”

Data Summit 2018 will take place at the Hyatt Regency Boston, May 22-23, with pre-conference workshops on Monday, May 21. Cognitive Computing Summit will also be co-located at the event.

“There’s certain data that lends itself really well to databases and will continue to do so but there’s a lot of data that’s just images or video feeds and all that translates into data,” said Jeschonek. “That data is currently overwhelming current systems for managing such data.”

There’s a twofold dilemma: businesses are storing massive amounts of data from numerous sources and enterprises need to make sense of that data in the most flexible way possible without breaking the bank, explained Jeschonek.

“People have become enamored with the cloud, they see the value of the cloud, they’re faced with the reality of their current business model and current IT infrastructure and so it’s important that people understand the choice of the cloud is not a simple thing, it can be more nuanced than that and you can use technologies that allow you to maintain what you’re doing today while at the same time moving certain capabilities into the cloud,” Jeschonek.

This will be Jeschonek’s first time at Data Summit and he’s interested in seeing what the vendors and speakers will be focused on in regards to how to manage data in the future.

“I think we’re at the beginning of a significant increase in data,” Jeschonek said.

He thinks attendees will be the most focused on how they can migrate workflows into the cloud without jeopardizing their current business processes.

Jeshonek will give his talk on Wednesday, May 23, 2018, at 3:00 pm at Data Summit.
