Big data has become an increasingly vital component of the business decision process. That was very evident at this year’s Hadoop Summit in San Jose, California. With training, three full days of content, over 125 speakers, exciting keynotes, and some 4,000 participants, it provided a plethora of valuable information.

During the conference, Dell and Syncsort made a pre-announcement of the Dell | Cloudera | Syncsort Data Warehouse Optimization – ETL Offload Reference Architecture, which will launch next month. This new RA for ETL offload allows companies to reduce Hadoop deployment times, develop ETL jobs within hours, and become fully productive within days. In turn it can lead to lower data transformation costs and can provide operational efficiencies that lay a strong, cost-effective, secure and scalable foundation for managing data on an ongoing basis.

As part of the pre-announcement, we sponsored a well-attended panel presentation with these partners to discuss this industry first and only solution. We’ll be posting a link to the panel presentation soon. Additionally, theCube hosted two live broadcasts to talk about the pre-announcement and details of the solution. You can view both of theCube interviews below.
