Data Transforming Business – Series 1, Episode 2

Enterprise Data Warehouse Optimisation Using Hadoop

We’ve come a long way since Founding Father of the United States, Benjamin Franklin, uttered the words “When you’re finished changing, you’re finished”. Said during a time that saw the introduction of what we now consider to be primitive inventions like the piano, the mercury thermometer and the steam engine, technology might have come a long way, but his sentiments about the importance of embracing change remain as important today as back in the 1700’s.

Donna Burbank, Managing Director of Global Data Strategy Ltd and recognised industry expert in information management asks our expert panellists some of the most pressing questions on industry hot topics, Big Data and Hadoop, and explores how data is transforming business.
