Big Data is everywhere now. Every company and organization that use some kind of data, is in the Big Data world. But here is the issue: we are used to Data Warehouse solution with advanced tools and expert DBA’s. But the Big Data looks like one big mess: Too many solutions to choose from, too many languages, many cloud providers, no good monitoring and administration tools available and many different API’s.

And the fact is: we cannot escape Big Data, and we need to get to decisions about tools to choose from huge repertoire.

In this seminar we are going to put some order in this world and give managers the tools to get to wise decisions about choosing the right architectures and solutions.
