Inaugural event brings together best minds of the data industry to explore opportunities made possible by state-of-the-art analytic approaches. Save the date: 1-2 October 2012
Teradata (NYSE: TDC), the analytic data solutions company, announced today that it will participate as elite sponsor at the O’Reilly Strata Conference, which will take place in London on 1-2 October 2012.

Alvin Richards, technical director for EMEA at 10gen, and Duncan Ross, director, data science EMEA, Teradata Corporation, will talk on “Hadoop and Beyond: Real World Architectures” in a joint session of the “Data Science” track. They will explain how companies can leverage big data ecosystems that consist of traditional data warehouses as well as Hadoop and NoSQL technologies. Furthermore the two experts will review how analytics are architected in large enterprises, covering real-time analytics, business intelligence reports, and ad-hoc queries. In particular, Richards and Ross will examine how Hadoop clusters are used and what analytical tasks are executed on them.
“As new types of data and big data analytic applications continue to emerge, tremendous business opportunities are created at breath-taking speed,” said Hermann Wimmer, president, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Teradata Corporation. “At the first European O’Reilly Strata Conference, Teradata will explain how companies can gain business value from big data. Attendees will learn from industry and technology leaders how to create a competitive advantage from new data types and how to develop their own strategy for big data analytics.”
 
The O’Reilly Strata Conference will bring together thought leaders and practitioners from various industries to discuss the changes brought to technology and business by big data, data science, and pervasive computing — and what these will mean for organisations in sectors like media, retail, health, finance, and government. In four conference tracks, “Business & Industry”, “Data Science”, “Nerdcore: Deep Data Tech” and “Visualization & Interface”, the speakers will focus on different aspects of central issues and opportunities that are specific to the European data community, but will also take into account the most significant topics and players in the global marketplace.
 
The first event of its kind in Europe will provide an excellent opportunity for data professionals to meet leading experts and to learn more about the technology driving the data revolution. Attendees will have the opportunity to test drive technologies and tools which are showcased at Strata, examine case studies of successful data applications in business use.
