Strata + Hadoop World 2016 returns to San Jose on Tuesday, March 29, 2016. The event is known as one of the foremost gatherings for the world’s leading data scientists, analysts, and executives in big data and analytics. Attendees represent innovative companies – from startups to well-established organizations – who come together for networking, sharing case studies, identifying proven best practices, and learning effective new analytic approaches and core skills.

We invite you to join us at Dell Booth #931, to share case studies and use cases, demos of new products and solutions we’re bringing to market, and for many, a special book signing event.

Dell is very honored to host Guy Harrison, author of "Next Generation Databases,” who will be on hand for in-booth book signings throughout the conference. Mr. Harrison’s book is for enterprise architects, database administrators, and developers with the need to understand the latest developments in database technologies. It’s the book to help you choose the right database technology at a time when concepts such as big data, NoSQL and NewSQL are making what used to be an easy choice, into a complex decision with significant implications. Mr. Harrison will be at the booth on Tuesday, March 29 at 5:15 PM, on Wednesday, March 30 at 1:30 PM, and Thursday, March 31 at 1:30 PM.

On Wednesday, March 30, join us for a Dell interactive panel presentation, at 11:50 AM, in room LL20B. The team will help attendees to outline their big data journeys as they address the question, “Where are you on your data journey?” Here they will take a close look at how Hadoop enables data-driven insights across organizations no matter where they are on their big data journey. Dell’s own Anthony Dina will host the interactive panel, with panelists Adnan Khaleel, Jeff Weidner, and Armando Acosta. Together they will explore how business units have taken advantage of Hadoop’s strengths to quickly identify and implement two use cases: an early use case for ETL offload that then led to a detailed and robust advanced analytics solution that enabled Dell to use marketing analytics to transform the business and strengthen customer relationships.


In-booth theater presentations from Dell, Cloudera and Intel, a Robot Run for prizes, in-booth demos and chances to win BB-8 robots are just a few of the fun plans we have at the Dell booth at Strata+Hadoop World. Plan to stop by!


Together with Intel and Cloudera, we are also hosting a networking dinner, with wine and beer tastings, on Tuesday. March 29, at The Farmers Union in San Jose. If you are interested in attending, please stop by Dell booth, #931 during the Opening Reception.

We look forward to seeing you in San Jose!
