Understanding Big Data: Analytics for Enterprise Class Hadoop and Streaming Data is written by a team five (5) IBM data management experts. It tells, in very straightforward terms, what ‘Big Data’ is and why it’s important. It provides a terrific primer on the what, why and how of Hadoop, the open source Big Data platform – plus lots of the other lingo that all Big Data customers (soon to be everyone) need to know. And – truth in advertising here – it describes IBM’s Big Data solutions in some detail.
Oh, one more thing: It is flying off the virtual shelves. I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to call it the Big Data ‘must-read’ of the moment. So download your copy before the moment passes.
Must-see Social TV. Starting at 8:00 AM ET on Monday, January 16, you can watch Lotusphere 2012 General Sessions – including the ever-popular live product demos – on the Livestream IBM Software Channel. And you can return to the channel often for interviews from the show floor, recorded sessions, and other videos you can watch live or on-demand. It’s nowhere near as good as being at Lotusphere, but it’s required viewing if you wish you were there. Tune in.
