According to The Forrester WaveTM: Big Data Fabric, Q4 2016, “Big data is not an option — it has become a necessity for supporting next-generation insights. Enterprises of all types and sizes are embracing big data, but the gap between business expectations and the challenges of supporting big data technology (such as Hadoop) has become the primary motivation to innovate with big data fabric.” 

To help you understand the philosophies behind big data fabric, Denodo will kick-start this complimentary, comprehensive half-day virtual event with a keynote from Brian Hopkins, an authority on systems of insight and a VP at Forrester Research. He will also sit on a panel of experts to discuss the development of advanced and predictive analytics using big data fabric. In this event, you will also hear about big data fabric success stories from Denodo customers such as Logitech and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and about next- generation data architectures from our partners Hortonworks and Looker.
