READY FOR “A PERFECT STORM”?

Up to now, companies interested in building Predictive Analytics have been forced to sample their data, spend large budgets on redundant infrastructure and work with code or proprietary scripts.  While such an approach might have been understandable in the 1980’s, it is simply intolerable in today’s world.

In today’s post-internet and post-Hadoop era, companies expect that any of their business employees and analysts can:

  • Work directly with Big Data or Hadoop without having to worry about moving data around.
  • Interact with Analytics in a visual manner, without having to learn code or resort to their rare data scientists.
  • Benefit from what’s possible when they don’t have to restrict their perspective and data access for budgetary or scalability reasons.

At Alpine, we call this situation “The Perfect Storm”.  And we are excited to invite you to witness this phenomenon in person at the Strata Conference + Hadoop-World Conference next week in New York City.  Please see below some of the main activities we will participate in and host.  We look forward to meeting you all!
