From Data Source to Secret Sauce: using Hive for BI Pros

Big Data is not so much about storing massive amounts of data in a common database. It is also a force of change for the organisation, and it means that we have to consider the collective capabilities of the platform to serve the business: from data source to secret sauce that will help the business to make data-driven decisions to drive the enterprise forward. How can you get your organisation's secret sauce? Big Data allows us to conduct better analyses because research has shown that simple algorithms with a lot of data can produce better results than complex algorithms that do not have a data-rich set to work on. Data scientists need a way of combining the scalability of Big Data with the ability to conduct extensive data analysis. Big Data can look like a minefield: what is Map Reduce? Do I have to know Java? In this session, you will be introduced to Hive, which is comfortingly similar to SQL and translates your SQL queries into Map Reduce behind the scenes for you. It's an essential tool so please join us to learn more about it.
