Richard will introduce Apache Drill, the new, low latency SQL query engine for Hadoop and NoSQL. Drill offers agility in allowing end users with SQL experience to query all of the data in a Hadoop cluster without preparation. Flexibility in analysing semi-structured and nested JSON data in files and in HBase & MapR-DB, the in-Hadoop NoSQL databases. Extensibility with plugins to query disparate external data sources
