Actian to Present on Hadoop Exoskeleton for High-Performance Analytics at Hadoop Summit Europe

AMSTERDAM – 1 April 2014 – Ketan Karia, senior vice president of marketing for Actian Corporation (“Actian”) the first company to assemble an end-to-end Big Data analytics platform that runs natively on Hadoop, will present “Hadoop Exoskeleton for High-Performance Analytics” at Hadoop Summit Europe.

The session takes place from 1:30 – 2:10 p.m. CEST on Wednesday 2 April at the Beurs van Berlage and will discuss how, although it is a keystone for Big Data strategies today, Hadoop’s power is largely focused on transaction capture, bulk ETL/ELT and archiving.  Karia will provide real-world examples of ways organizations have taken Hadoop to the next level with analytics to deliver fast answers and sophisticated data services.  The session also describes how the end-to-end Actian Analytics Platform, recently described as the “exoskeleton for Hadoop,” enables high-performance analytics and reporting natively in Hadoop – the key to enabling organizations of all types to get transformative value from Big Data analytics.

Actian, a Platinum Sponsor of the event, is also exhibiting throughout the summit in Booth 12, with demos that show how the Actian Analytics Platform delivers “Big Data for the Rest of Us.”
