In many organizations, Hadoop clusters and NoSQL databases are augmenting enterprise data warehouses, not replacing them. But integrating big data systems and data warehouses takes a steady hand and a solid plan. This virtual classroom provides IT, data warehouse, business intelligence and analytics professionals as well as business executives with insight and practical advice on integrating big data technologies into corporate data warehousing environments. In a webcast presentation, consultant William McKnight provides guidance on developing and implementing strategies for knitting together Hadoop and data warehouses. In a podcast Q&A, Forrester Research analyst Brian Hopkins offers advice on evaluating and choosing technologies to support data integration projects involving Hadoop and NoSQL systems. And in a tip article, consultant David Loshin outlines a roadmap for getting started on big data integration initiatives.
