Over the years, Big Data pundits have come up with great one-liners to highlight the importance of data: "Data is the new gold" or "Data is the new bacon" are examples of such analogies.  They are all great but there is one in particular that's been bothering me lately.  If you're coming to next week's DataWorks event, be sure to attend the AtScale keynote on Wednesday to find out which one it is and why...

What's DataWorks?

DataWorks Summit is the new name Hortonworks and Yahoo! have given to their industry famous "Hadoop Summit".  This new name makes sense as enterprises are expanding use-cases and look at Big Data beyond Hadoop.

If you haven't registered yet, there is still time! (the event starts on Tuesday and ends on Thursday night). Be sure to get a 20% discount though by using our code at registration! MSPO20

If you can not make the event in person, there is always the LiveStream @ https://dataworkssummit.com/live

Want to prepare before the event?  If you're new, check out our What's Hadoop quick video.  If you're more advanced, download of our SQL-on-Hadoop benchmark (covering Hive, Spark, Impala and Presto).

What You Can't Afford to Miss...

As you might remember from our June 2016 announce, AtScale is a very special Hortonworks partner.  You won't be able to miss our booth and banners at the event.  Our team will be located at booth #102.  Be sure to stop by for great demos, giveaways and games...

AtScale customers will be everywhere!  If you don't have the opportunity to meet our customers in our booth or on the show floor, be sure to look out for the below.
