Breakout Sessions

We had two great breakout sessions related to Big Data.

First up was Deriving insights from data with Dell Cloudera Big Data Hadoop Solutions where Joey Jablonski moderated the session and welcomed Rami Lokas from Omneo, a division of Camstar Systems and Rob Johnson, Cloudera.

In this breakout, guests learned how to uncover the insights in their data to drive their competitive advantages, how to get the necessary tools to build and scale with expanding and diverse big data, and how to understand how take control of data and turn it into usable information that drives quantifiable business results.

Next up was Making Data the Lifeblood of your Organization where Karim Lokas from Omneo, a division of Camstar Systems, was one of three featured customer presenters. The session was introduced and moderated by Teresa de Onis and Uday Tekumalla from Dell.
