Qlik and Cloudera to Host Big Data Virtual Event
RADNOR, Pa., June 18 – Qlik, a leader in user-driven Business Intelligence (BI), and Cloudera, a leader in enterprise analytic data management powered by Apache Hadoop, today announced that they will host a free joint virtual event to help participants better manage big data to achieve insights and leverage Business Discovery to improve decision making.
There are common denominators to data challenges across most industries and segments. With the explosion of big data, many organizations struggle to effectively collect and store the relevant data from their business. This is further complicated by disparate data sources and complex data management landscapes. Once organizations have a handle on collecting their data, they often face a significant challenge when it comes to analyzing it. In order to realize the full benefits of big data, business users must be able to access, analyze, visualize and explore it, while having the flexibility to ask the next question without needing to go back to IT.
In this free virtual event, attendees can learn from Qlik and Cloudera experts and customers, who offer insight and guidance into the ‘what’s next’ with Big Data. Additionally, Cindi Howson, founder of the BI Scorecard, will offer compelling perspectives in her presentation The Big Bang: Big Data, Cloud, and Visual Discovery.
The agenda will include three tracks:
- Big Data for IT
- Big Data for Supply Chain
- Big Data for Sales and Marketing
The event will take place on June 24, 2014, from 1 pm ET – 5 pm ET.
