Since the Strata Conference + Hadoop World combined forces, it has become not only the largest Hadoop community conference, but also where big data’s most influential decision makers, architects, developers, and analysts gather to shape the future of their businesses and technologies. As such, it is no surprise that Pivotal will be part of this event on October 28-30 at the New York Hilton in New York City.

We will have executives, technologists and data scientists on hand at the conference to share with attendees Pivotal’s advancement of Pivotal HD and HAWQ, our Apache Hadoop distribution and query tool that not only allows data analysts to use SQL, but can also execute queries 318 times faster than Hive. Pivotal experts can be found in the exhibit hall all three days of the conference, and will be speaking twice, including the keynote on the second day. For attendees who would prefer a private meeting with Pivotal, send us a message via our contact page, or direct message us on Twitter @GoPivotal.

Some of the Pivotal team will also be hosting an open event at the New York Stock Exchange on the evening of October 28th to discuss new Hadoop developments born from a new NYSE Euronext and Pivotal partnership.

Designing Your Data-Centric Organization

9:05am Wednesday, 10/30/2013 in the Grand Ballroom

Data is coming at us from everywhere–in small quantities, large magnitudes, and in almost every format. As Pivotal’s Vice President of Data Platform Product Management, Josh Klahr has the know-how to provide insights on how to build an organization that strategically manages this data in today’s modern and complex enterprise environments. Integration of a data platform, BI tools, data science services and applications/app development are just some of the factors that must be considered in the design of an effective organizational framework. Josh will draw from first-hand experiences and real-work with customers of all sizes to provide insight into best practices and lessons learned along the way.
