October is an incredibly busy month for Data professionals. First, the Strata O'Reilly Conference takes us East to mingle with thousands of data nerds and debate on the future of Hadoop. Then, the Tableau Conference takes us back West to challenge Directors of Analytics and Business Intelligence to connect their tools to the "Data Lake".
That's a lot to absorbe in just a few weeks. If, like me, you like to simplify things, you might want to sign up for the Cube. John Furier and David Vallente have created a show designed to "extract the signal from the noise". Think of their show as the "ESPN of Data".
In the below segment, David Vallente asks me to summarize the insights we unveiled in the Hadoop Maturity Survey we released this month in partnership with Cloudera, Hortonworks, MapR and Tableau.
