Seven Secrets to Hadoop Success

Apache Hadoop is great but deployment can be tricky. If you have considered or are currently deploying a Hadoop solution, you're in luck because Steve Watt, our chief Hadoop technologist, will be talking about Hadoop success strategies on September 25th in a webinar sponsored by HP and Intel. Sign up for free.


You may know Steve through personal interaction or through his work as the chair of the Hadoop & Big Data User Group in Austin, or perhaps at his previous stint at IBM where he was researcher and software architect of emerging technologies. Did I mention that Steve is an active Apache contributor and has 17 US patents to his name. Holy smoke! 


If that didn't impress you, maybe this might - you could win an HP mini notebook just for signing up. Know someone who might be interested. Send them a link to this blog post. It's worth a ton of karma points.
