Melbourne to host APAC's first Hadoop Summit

By

The first Apache Hadoop Summit in the Asia-Pacific region will be held in Melbourne at the Crown Conference Centre on 31 August and 1 September.

The event is being hosted by Hortonworks and will feature more than 60 speakers across 48 sessions.

Apache Hadoop is an open-source software framework for distributed storage and distributed processing of very large datasets on computer clusters built from commodity hardware.

All sessions will be addressed by pragmatists and experts in their fields who have been selected by the Apache community.

Attendees will gain an understanding of key technologies powering new modern data applications and the value they generate for organisations.

Similar events have been held in Dublin and San Jose this year.

A panel comprising Hortonworks chief technology officer Scott Gnau, Ravi Kalidindi, data architecture and technology manager at AGL Energy, and Niall Keating, head of big data at Coles, will discuss their experiences and points of view around Apache Hadoop.

Lee Hickin, commercial lead for Internet-of-Things at Microsoft, will deliver a keynote. Microsoft is the platinum sponsor of the event.

A technical demonstration keynote will be given by Hortonworks founder Alan Gates who will discuss key connected data architecture trends and showcase a cloud technical preview.
