Hadoop Summit Focuses on Enterprise Adoption

Congratulations to our partner Hortonworks on a fantastic Hadoop Summit 2015 this week in San Jose, CA. As they outlined on the official blog, the three day conference featured 160+ presentations, community meetups, keynotes (including a great market overview from Geoffrey Moore, who also presented in 2012), and a vibrant ecosystem with lots of activity in the partner expo. While there were lots of deep-dive technical sessions on Spark, Flink, Zeppelin, and other new open source projects, the overall theme of this year’s conference leaned towards enterprise Hadoop adoption, big data use cases and business outcomes. Governance and security were front and center, as was the data lake and how it will both complement and replace elements of your existing analytics infrastructure. I’m pretty sure I even heard a few people talk about metadata.

I’ve seen some great posts about the event already and the Hadoop Summit tweet stream is full of interesting observations and content. Here are some of the better conference reviews I’ve seen so far:

You can watch the keynotes (except Geoffrey Moore, TrueCar and the customer panel, which I think were the best) here. A few of my favorite tweets:

The SnapLogic team was out in full force at the conference talking about our big data integration capabilities and how we Connect Faster (and how we’re hiring).
