GSLMUG February Meeting – Speaker: Dean Compher – Big Data

We were pleased to hear from Dean Compher, IBM IT Specialist here in Salt Lake City talk to us about Big Data.  He reviewed the impact of the incredible continuing growth of data that is being collected and how organizations are trying to work with new technologies that help understand all of that data.  There is and open source platform that is used called, “Hadoop” that is one of the technologies being used.  Take a look at the following video of Dean’s presentation.
