Last week saw two compelling local big data events here in So Cal, both sponsored by MapR. I thought I’d provide a short recap of the events for those who were unable to attend. I was on a panel for the first event, “Digital Transformation in Big Data” and the discussion revolved around MapR’s unique vision for the “3 Keys to Digital Transformation.” For a detailed discussion, these points are well described in a recent blog post.
MapR Technologies, Inc., provider of the industry’s Converged Data Platform, announced the next major release of the MapR Ecosystem Pack program, a broad set of open source ecosystem projects that enable big data applications running on the MapR Converged Data Platform while ensuring inter-project compatibility. These latest enhancements also add flexible access and provide new capabilities for streaming applications.
MapR, the company behind the Converged Data Platform, is hosting two very timely upcoming big data events in Southern California. If you find yourself in Los Angeles, specifically Newport Beach in Orange County, and/or Santa Monica, please consider registering now.
