“BI Guru @rick_vanderlans presents the Big Picture on Big Data”

Why do we organize this seminar about Big Data, NoSQL, NewSQL and Analytics ?

Today, Big Data, Hadoop, NoSQL, NewSQL, analytical database servers, MapReduce, appliances are all very popular terms in the IT industry. But are these just all hypes? Is this exotic technology only for Facebook and Twitter-like websites ? Was the relational database not the one-size-fits-all solution for all your information management problems after all ? Can Big Data and NoSQL be valuable for more traditional enterprises like yours ?

This seminar discusses and positions these new developments clearly, and explains why and how they can be relevant for any organisation. Our speaker Rick van der Lans is a database-expert pur sang, very familiar with relational database technology and SQL, who has witnessed the rise (and sometimes fall) of many other database technologies, like hierarchical and network databases, object databases, XML databases and now also NoSQL, NewSQL, streaming and analytical databases. Rick offers you the knowledge and insights you need to make the right choices in the big data revolution, and to put NoSQL, NewSQL, analytical database servers and big data in a broader, pragmatic perspective.

What does big data have to offer for retail, utilities, banking, insurance, ... companies ?
