Talk #1: As the industry celebrates 10 years of Hadoop, BT celebrates 5 years since its first Hadoop cluster took its first faltering steps in Research and 2 years since it launched its production Hadoop as a Service Platform. Phill Radley (Chief data Architect at BT) will reflect on those 5 years sharing insights discovered along the way and discussing why BT is a Cloudera customer. He’ll also sketch out what he sees for the next few years.
Talk #2: Marks & Spencer are now three years into their ongoing Cloudera journey and have experienced a number of challenges and successes along the way. Through an exploration of some key use cases, James Lupton (Principal Big Data Consultant) will share the highs and lows of introducing this new technology into a crowded technical landscape and will outline how the use of Impala has proved to be a true accelerator for Hadoop becoming the analytical platform of choice.
Talk #3: Wes McKinney will provide an overview of the latest data science development at Cloudera
