BigData vs. Data Warehousing



We are looking at the dawn of a new workload: BigData. In this session I will talk about what BigData
is, and which BigData technologies Microsoft are working on. I will talk about how we collaborate with the HADOOP community, and where this is taking our current roadmap. I will also provide some basic introduction to Map/Reduce programming and the mindset you adopt to apply it.


One of the big questions today is: “What will HADOOP do to the world of data warehousing?”. This is
fascinating because BigData and data warehousing interact in a very interesting ways. In the second part of the session, I will share my thoughts on HADOOP’s place in the enterprise architecture.
