TDWI Los Angeles Chapter Meeting
When: Tuesday, September 10, 2013 at 2:30 PM
Where: Universal City Hilton, Universal City, CA
What: MapR’s Chief Marketing Officer Jack Norris will present a session titled, “Design considerations and the economics behind data warehouse offloading with Hadoop.” Hadoop is being actively used today to offload ETL processing as well as data from enterprise data warehouses.  During this talk specific use cases will illustrate the design considerations and the economics behind data warehouse offloading with Hadoop, including the capability to store and analyze unstructured and structured data with a 50X cost advantage.  Additional information about how a Hadoop platform can support extended analytics will also be covered.

Big Data Innovation Summit
When: Thursday, September 12, 2013 at 2:30 PM
Where: Westin Copley Place, Boston, MA
What: MapR’s Vice President of Product Management Tomer Shiran will present a session titled, “One Platform for Big Data.” Until recently, a defining characteristic of Big Data platforms has been that they are highly specialized. Hadoop didn't really deal with ad hoc queries, relational engines couldn't handle scale, NoSQL and search engines couldn't handle SQL and none of the common platforms could really combine real-time and long-time analyses. Solutions are emerging, however, that allow all of these capabilities to be supported by a single platform. Join the session to understand how one such platform could provide an answer to Big Data questions.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Social & Wine Tasting | Database Solutions
When: Thursday, September 12 at 4:00 PM
Where: Amazon office, 475 Sansome Street #2100, San Francisco, CA
What: MapR’s Chief Marketing Officer Jack Norris will present a session titled, “Harness Big Data with HBase Applications on AWS.” NoSQL and Hadoop are two of the fastest growing technologies in Big Data.  HBase, which lies at the intersection of these two technologies, holds great promise for firms that want to leverage both Hadoop and NoSQL on one platform. This session presents the value and promise of HBase applications for AWS users. The session will cover details on the use cases that can leverage both NoSQL as well as MapReduce functionality within the EMR service. Different options available to deploy HBase will be discussed with an emphasis on end user benefits across the options.
