Synopsis:

Big  Data: Hundreds of gigabytes of data constitute the low end of Hadoop’s scale. Hadoop is a large-scale distributed batch processing infrastructure. While it can be used on a single machine, its true power lies in its ability to scale to hundreds or thousands of computers, each with several processor cores. Hadoop is also designed to efficiently distribute large amounts of work across a set of machines.

This talk looks at the concepts and benefits of Hadoop and Big Data. It will help both IT professionals and decision-makers in attaining an understanding of Hadoop's data dynamic and how it can help them meet their business goals.
