There’s no way around it: learning about Big Data means getting comfortable with all sorts of new terms and ideas, many of which overlap. This can be a bit confusing, so this talk aims to help clear away some of the fog.

Robert will begin by explaining what Big Data is - and isn’t - and what’s driving its incredible momentum. Next, he’ll describe how NoSQL solutions represent a fresh approach to get the most out of Big Data. Google’s MapReduce is one example of a NoSQL-oriented technology that has proven to be particular well suited for this task.

Finally, Robert will illustrate how Hadoop is a complete technology stack that implements the concepts of MapReduce to exploit Big Data.
