3:45pm - 5:00pm

Level: Intermediate

Andrew Brust

Senior Director, Market Strategy and Intelligence


As Big Data starts to move beyond its hype cycle, Hadoop is reaching critical mass as an Enterprise computing tool. Microsoft's flavor of Hadoop, Azure HDInsight, has matured a great deal as well. It's been fortified with many of the new Hadoop-compatible processing engines that have come on the scene and now it's available in Linux versions as well as its original Windows distribution.

Come to this session to see Andrew Brust, SQL Server Live!'s co-chair and Gigaom's Big Data Research Director, teach you what Hadoop is, how it works, what to do to get it running on the Azure cloud and how to integrate it with SQL Server BI, Excel and third party tools.
