In 2005, Tim O'Reilly predicted: "Data is the Next Intel Inside." Today the future he envisioned is unfolding at a startling pace. O'Reilly's Strata Conference brings together the leading minds in big data: the decision makers using the power of big data to drive business strategy as well as the practitioners who collect, analyze, and manipulate the data. Strata and Hadoop World have now joined forces to create the largest gathering of the Apache Hadoop community in the world, with emphasis on hands-on and business sessions on the Hadoop ecosystem.
A connected world, brimming with data and fueled by near-limitless computing power, is changing everything about how we live, love, work, and play. It's a change that offers tremendous opportunity—to transform business, end corruption, teach the world, and help society tackle its biggest challenges. And yet it creates new threats, from privacy concerns to Orwellian dystopia. What's clear is that the future belongs to those who understand how to collect and use their data successfully. And that future happens at Strata.
Strata Conference delivers the nuts-and-bolts foundation for building a data-driven business—the latest on the skills, tools, and technologies you need to make data work—alongside the forward-looking insights and ahead-of-the-curve thinking O'Reilly is known for.
Strata Conference & Hadoop World will bring three full days of inspiring keynotes, intensely practical & information-rich sessions, a sponsor pavilion with key players and products, and plenty of networking events to the East Coast. Strata has a laser-sharp focus on the big data issues that are shaping the business, finance, media, and government worlds.
Strata is where the leading minds in big data converge to map out the future, share their experiences and expertise, and learn from the people driving the data revolution. If you want to tap into the opportunity that big data presents, be at Strata.
