Dr. Flavio Villanustre, VP Infrastructure & Products, HPCC Systems and LexisNexis (and former-neurosurgeon!) discussing Big Data with HPCC Systems, Hadoop & Pentaho BI Suite (HD-video)

Dr. Flavio Villanustre will speak on how the HPCC Systems platform and its declarative language, ECL, are leveraged for tackling Big Data and explain how ECL is to Big Data as SQL is to RDBMS, along with demos of our latest integration work with Pentaho Business Intelligence Suite, R & Hadoop. Flavio will also present a technical deep dive into the HPCC Systems architecture and its major components including Thor (data refinery engine) and Roxie (data delivery engine) and how it compares and integrates with other big data technologies like Hadoop. Flavio will also touch on the total cost of ownership (TCO) of big data analytics solutions and offer tips and recommendations for managing costs.
