Webinar: Run Operational Applications on Hadoop Using Splice Machine and Hortonworks

July 28, 2015

As the collection of data proliferates, retailers are increasingly both overwhelmed by and interested in capturing the growing volumes to deliver greater value to their organizations. Whether the requirement is increasing revenue and margin, improving customer loyalty and consumer intimacy, or back-office optimization of IT processes – data driven decision-making is the key to success.

For the Retail and Consumer Packaged Goods industries the benefits of Big Data solutions, such as Hortonworks Hadoop, and scale-out databases, such as Splice Machine’s Hadoop RBDMS, include reduction of costs and improved consumer insight, resulting in a better customer experience and greater chance for repeat business.

When integrated with operational applications, Hadoop can be used to dramatically reduce the cost of capturing, ingesting, storing, and analyzing all of the data available across channels, making it easier for them to capture a 360-degree view of their customers.

On Tuesday, August 4th, Eric Thorsen, General Manager, Consumer Products and Retail at Hortonworks, and Krishnan Parasuraman, VP of Business Development at Splice Machine, discussed how the Hortonworks open enterprise data platform paired with Splice Machine’s Hadoop RDBMS can be leveraged to support Systems of Record, the systems we rely on daily to run our businesses, and the rapidly growing field of Big Data and Hadoop.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • What initiatives we are seeing drive real value for retailers
  • Common business drivers and recommended solutions
  • How Hortonworks and Splice Machine can be leveraged to support systems of record
