The need for a platform for data applications

Phoenix Data Conference – Featured Speaker of the Day.

Today’s Featured Speaker is Nitin Motgi.

Nitin is Founder and CTO of Cask, where he is responsible for developing the company’s long-term technology, driving company engineering initiatives and collaboration. Prior to Cask, Nitin was at Yahoo! working on a large-scale content optimization system externally known as C.O.R.E. He previously held senior engineering roles at Altera and FedEx.

Title: The evolution of Hadoop & Rise of Data Applications


Since Google published its research paper on MapReduce in 2004 and 2006 when Hadoop was born within Yahoo to 2009 when Hadoop was open sourced, Hadoop has evolved from more than just HDFS & MapReduce to a platform with a large ecosystem of technologies that solves a wide variety of complex problems at scale.

Join me as I discuss the history of Hadoop, including its challenges, application model, use cases, and the real need for a developer platform for data applications. I will also explain how a new wave of open source projects including Cask Data Application Platform (CDAP), Tephra, Tigon, and Coopr is enabling developers and companies to overcome big data challenges with applications built on Hadoop and related technologies.

Come watch him talk at the Phoenix Data Conference on the 25th of October. More information at PhxDataConference.
