Real World Use Cases: Hadoop and NoSQL in Production

Tugdual Grall View Bio

What’s important about a technology is what you can use it to do. I’ve looked at what a number of groups are doing with Apache Hadoop and NoSQL in production, and I will relay what worked well for them and what did not. Drawing from real world use cases, I show how people who understand these new approaches can employ them well in conjunction with traditional approaches and existing applications. Thread Detection, Datawarehouse optimization, Marketing Efficiency, Biometric Database are some examples exposed during this presentation.
Anomaly Detection in Telecom with Spark

Tugdual Grall View Bio

Telecom operators need to find operational anomalies in their networks very quickly. This need, however, is shared with many other industries as well so there are lessons for all of us here. Spark plus a streaming architecture can solve these problems very nicely. I will present both a practical architecture as well as design patterns and some detailed algorithms for detecting anomalies in event streams. These algorithms are simple but quite general and can be applied across a wide variety of situations.
