Podcast Show Notes: The Big Deal About Big Data

This week the OTN ArchBeat Podcast kicks off a three-part series that looks at Big Data: what it is, its affect on enterprise IT, and what architects need to do to stay ahead of the big data curve. My guests for this conversation are Jean-Pierre Dijks and Andrew Bond . Jean-Pierre, based at Oracle HQ in Redwood Shores, CA, is product manager for Oracle Big Data Appliance and Oracle's big data strategy. Andrew Bond  is Head of Transformation Architecture for Oracle, where he specialzes in Data Warehousing, Business Intelligence, and Big Data. Andrew is based in the UK, but for this conversation he dialed in from a car somewhere on the streets of Amsterdam.
  • Listen to Part 1
    What is Big Data, really, and why does it matter?
  • Listen to Part 2
    What new challenges does Big Data present for Architects? What do architects need to do to prepare themselves and their environments?
  • Listen to Part 3
    Who is driving the adoption of Big Data strategies in organizations, and why?

  • FairScheduling Conventions in Hadoop (The Data Warehouse Insider)

  • SOA Learning Library (SOA & BPM Partner Community Blog)
    The Oracle Learning Library offers a vast collection of e-learning resources covering a mind-boggling array of products and topics. And it's all free—if you have an membership. And if you don't, that's free, too. Could this be any easier?
