January 15, 2015
William McKnight

Splice Machine hosted a webinar on Tuesday, January 20th with William McKnight of the McKnight Consulting Group and Splice Machine’s own VP of Product Management and Marketing, Rich Reimer.

During this webinar, you will learn how Hadoop is transitioning from a novel concept to a key component of modern data management architectures.

People get excited when shiny a new technology comes along, especially when it promises to solve major pain points. But sometimes jumping in with both feet too soon can cause unforeseen and unpleasant consequences. When organizations want to take advantage of the next big thing, it’s important to first take a hard look at what the company’s needs and resources are before making the big leap into the unknown.

Watch this episode of The Briefing Room to hear veteran Analyst William McKnight as he explains how Hadoop is transitioning from a novel concept to a key component of modern data management architectures. He is briefed by Rich Reimer of Splice Machine, who discusses how they have helped customers get started in Hadoop with an Operational Data Lake, a Hadoop-based, scale-out solution designed to replace stressed out Operational Data Stores (ODSs). He explains how an Operational Data Lake becomes a great on-ramp to Big Data, ensuring that companies get immediate value from their Hadoop investment and avoid the trap of the never-ending “science” project.
