When Elephants Mate—Will Hadoop Transform Banking?

Location: Sutton North

Banking is a data business, yet the tools it has had to leverage that asset have not worked (the credit crisis should be a hint). In this talk we set out to prove that the technological advances Hadoop brings (online access to data, cheap storage, parallelized analytics, massive scalability) are a perfect match (and answer) to the massive data problems the industry faces. And we do it with real life war stories and live examples.
