2) Something for Everyone

Whether you are Technical or Business focused, Hadoop Summit speaks your language. If you are a coder, you can get your geek on with deep dive sessions ‘straight from the elephant’s mouth’.  While business users can learn to leverage Hadoop to drive business insights. Who knows, you both might just learn a thing or two about how each other thinks about Hadoop.  For example, while IT is loving Hadoop, many Business users still ask ‘huh-what?’ 

With close to 75% of many company's data going unused, according to Forrester, it’s clear there is still some disconnect between Hadoop implementation and Hadoop adoption.  So while you check out what’s interesting to you at Hadoop Summit, you can check out what your counterpart (IT or Business) is thinking, and work together to bridge the gap between Big Data and Big Data access.   

3) Be a Leader, Not a Follower.

If you are just starting to consider Hadoop; you better get moving asap or you may fall behind.  According to Forrester, 100% of enterprises will be using Hadoop in the next 24 months.  If you need to jumpstart, kick-start, or leap-frog your Hadoop strategy ahead, Hadoop Summit 2016 is the place to get and learn what you need.   Wondering how you compare to your industry peers regarding Hadoop?  Take the 2016 Big Data Maturity survey here.

Hadoop Summit 2016 is open for voting, and as they say 'open for business'.  Get your vote on, and get your Hadoop on!  AtScale is excited to join in the community and sharing at Hadoop Summit 2016, so plan to meet us in the Community Showcase to discuss how you can make BI work on Hadoop.  See you in San Jose!
