Cloudera Gears Up for Record Attendance at Its Third Annual Hadoop World Conference in NYC

PALO ALTO, CA – Cloudera, the leading provider of Apache Hadoop-based data management software and services, is gearing up for its third annual Hadoop World conference in New York City, November 8 and 9. The sold out event brings together some of the most influential voices in data management and business intelligence along with more than 1400 attendees, and the two-day event is the largest gathering of practitioners, developers, influencers and vendors in the Hadoop ecosystem.

The conference offers 60 educational breakout sessions across five tracks, each exploring the conference theme: Hadoop for the Data-Driven Enterprise. Keynote addresses are slated from Cloudera CEO Mike Olson; Cloudera Chief Architect and creator of Apache Hadoop Doug Cutting; eBay VP of Experience, Search and Platforms Hugh Williams; Executive Vice President and CTO for Informatica James Markarian; Managing Director, Office of the CIO for JP Morgan Chase Larry Feinsmith; as well as insights from distinguished industry analysts from 451 Group, Forrester and Ovum. Educational sessions will highlight cutting edge developments in the Apache Hadoop platform and feature real-world deployment stories and use cases from British Sky Broadcasting, CBS Interactive, Cloudera, Credit Mutuel Arkea, Dell, Disney, eBay, Facebook, IBM Netezza, HP Vertica, Informatica, Intel, Jive, LinkedIn, NetApp, NTT Data, Nokia, Oracle, Orbitz, Teradata, VMware, and many more.

“Over the past year, the rest of the world has discovered ‘the secret’ of Hadoop and Big Data in general — our recent survey shows that Big Data projects in the enterprise will emerge from early adopter status in two years,” said Tony Baer, principal analyst for Ovum. “The vendor community has discovered what those on the front lines already know: there is a business case for Big Data and a place for NoSQL in the enterprise mainstream. The technology is rapidly maturing, and the time to start planning for adoption is now.”

“It’s been exciting to see the rapid adoption of Apache Hadoop, as demonstrated by the wide range of Hadoop World sessions describing production applications,” said Doug Cutting, creator of Apache Hadoop and Cloudera architect. “Hadoop World gives its attendees the tools they need to make real and lasting advancements to their organizations.”
