The #BigDataWithTalend Challenge at Hadoop Summit

June 09, 2014 --

Last week at Hadoop Summit in San Jose, California, visitors to the Talend booth were given the opportunity to tell their big data story, through a short video. We had setup a recording studio on the booth, with live production capabilities, and asked attendees a simple question – along the lines of “what benefits are you getting/expecting from big data?” or “how do you use Hadoop in your organization?”  All participants were entered into a raffle to win the hottest item in wearable technology: Google Glass. All videos were posted to the Talend Channel on YouTube in real-time, and tweeted used hashtag #BigDataWithTalend.

Many of the participants gave some really good stories. My personal picks include:

Our raffle winner was Joshua Magana from Vindicia, an online payment platform, who discussed how they moved from traditional data to big data and Hadoop

We will be providing a complete round up of these videos soon, stay tuned.
