Big Data, NoSQL, Now What?
Big Data technologies are evolving to suit the needs of real-time analytics for 2013 and beyond. During this interactive discussion we will explore this evolution starting with a brief recap on Hadoop and related technologies, how NoSQL technologies fit in the Big Data landscape and where things can/should go from here. Of course, this dialogue would not be complete without discussing the new and changing roles in IT, what IT managers should know vs developer/architect concerns. At the conclusion of this discussion, attendees will take away:
With 24 years of professional IT experience, Mr. Krupa has a unique breadth and depth of expertise within nearly all aspects of IT architecture.

Prior to that, he consulted with Sun Microsystems as a direct partner and also served as Chief Architect of GFI Group, a Wall St. inter-dealer brokerage.
