SQL-on-Hadoop technologies are evolving at a rapid pace. Apache Drill is an open source distributed SQL query engine that is set to redefine how one approaches SQL for big data.

This session provides an in-depth introduction to how Apache Drill provides ANSI SQL capabilities on data that has just arrived on Hadoop without having to create a centralized schema. While dramatically improving the time-to-value of your data, Drill also is built with a JSON-like data model that provides interactive query speeds on common data formats used by modern web applications. Keys will provide an overview of these topics along with examples.
