My main goal this week is to take advantage of the pre-conference training “HP Vertica Advanced Performance Training ” I have had the opportunity to download and test HP’s Vertica Platform over the last couple of months. The VerticaÂ Introduction CourseÂ does a great jobÂ maximizing your understanding and usage of the Vertica Analytics Platform however when you dig deeper the Advanced class is a must!Â I would recommend the Advanced Course, benefits below;
Now lets focus on the Buzzword Big Data and why the event has sold out! Big Data has been a buzz word over the last couple of years and several companies have been venturing into this space.
Â Many researchers have attempted to estimate the market size of â€œBig Dataâ€ opportunities. Triangulating on three sources of data (Wikibon,Â IDCÂ Â and from publicly reported revenues by major players in â€œBig Dataâ€) puts the total market opportunity at $40 Billion, at a CAGR of about 51% year on year.
One of the companies that has made an investment in the Big Data space has been HP with the famous acquisition of Autonomy and Vertica. In regards to this event, the focus will be on HP’s Vertica Platform.Â Â The event keynote will be presented byÂ Colin Mahony, who will set the stage for organizations of all sizes who are looking for guidance and practical approaches on how they can optimize and monetize all their Big Data with the HP Vertica Analytics Platform.
Another focus at this event will be HP’s HAVEn platform.One of the announcements fromÂ HP Software at HP Discover was HAVEn.Â HPâ€™s answer to the big data challenges most organizations are facing today. HAVEn stands for Hadoop, Autonomy, Vertica, Enterprise Security and n – number of applications. Â According to the HP Software Solutions Blog, Paul Muller’s identifiesÂ the challenges of big data into five key areas:
Hear more from each of the LOB leaders as theyÂ explain what HAVEnÂ is and how this big data platform addresses each of the challenges above.One thing is for sure, the Big Data problem will not be correcting itself. The organization investing in these technologies will be at forefront. Gartner reports thatÂ enterprise data growth rates now average 40 percent to 60 percent annually. So tap into your data and be able to get what you need now. If not you will be one of thoseÂ companies without a plan for managing and exploiting the explosion in data.Â
