Bertrand Cariou
Senior Director, Solutions Marketing & Partners, Trifecta

Thawing out frozen data lakes so business and IT can fish together
Many organizations today — large or small, monolithic or agile — have found that just because they have loads of data pouring into a data lake, that doesn’t mean the data is going to be easily accessible or in formats that can be used by business or IT users. This can lead to frustration; not to mention, it’s a terrible use of the time and IT resources that were originally expended to create and maintain the data lake in the first place, according to Gianthomas Volpe, head of customer development, EMEA, at Alation Inc.

Shaun Connolly
Chief Strategy Officer, Hortonworks

The path of profitability: Connected data is where the value lies for Hortonworks
Software providers like Hortonworks Inc. that offer Apache Hadoop-based software, support and services are turning to Wall Street to increase profitability. In recent news, Cloudera Inc. announced it will be offering an initial public offering. However, some critics believe the company will not retain its value. And industry experts believe that the only companies profiting from open-source investments are the practitioners. Read the full blog post with highlights from his interview at SiliconANGLE.com.


Scott Gnau
CTO, Hortonworks

How analytics software is building value by opening doors to new business
The data analytics market is currently in a strange place. While data insights have proven vital to the enterprise, it’s nothing if a company doesn’t act on it, a process typically outside the realm of analytics service providers. Likewise, powerful tools, such as Apache Hadoop, produce insights that boost the value of such products from service providers. So, where is the money for analytics vendors?

Nadeem Gulzar
Head of Advanced Analytics & Architecture, Danske Bank

150-year-old bank welcomes disruption with fintech and Hadoop
You might think that a bank founded in 1871 would fear change; banks and financial service businesses are historically big on tradition and adverse to change. Financial technology (also known as fintech) startups are causing disruption in the banking and finance services space in a big way, and many organizations fear this new dynamic. But when asked about fintech, Nadeem Gulzar, head of advanced analytics and architecture at Danske Bank, has a quite different answer.

Mike Merritt-Holmes
VP Global Services Strategy, Think Big, A Teradata Company

Are companies keeping secrets about big data ROI?
The going joke in big data is that ROI means “Reduction on Investment.” So far, real profits are missing in action. But a conspiracy of silence at enterprises may be hiding a very different reality, according to Mike Merrit-Holmes, senior vice president of global services strategy at Think Big, A Teradata Company.

John Kreisa
VP, International Marketing, Hortonworks

Europe’s on a roll with big data — will new privacy regulations halt it?
After years of lagging behind the U.S. in big data, Europe has just about caught up, according to John Kreisa, vice president of international marketing at Hortonworks Inc. But will the EU’s new data privacy legislation break their stride? Read the full blog post with highlights from his interview at SiliconANGLE.com.


Chandra Mukhyala
Offering Manager, IBM Storage, IBM

Making sense of data: IBM’s take on Hadoop, enterprise storage
In the new “Wild West” of big data — encompassing the Internet of Things, cognitive business and cloud — storage has morphed from a boring box that resides in a data center to the new star of the data show, capable of gleaning analytics and vast business-critical insights from the data on hand.

Alan Nance
Executive Vice President, Virtual Clarity

Does digital transformation really lead to happily ever after?
Digital transformation promises many things to organizations. By moving data to, for example, a hybrid cloud, organizations can solve all data issues and everyone will be profitable and live happily ever after. Right? Well, any company that undertakes a journey of digital transformation needs to realize that data is no longer stagnant, living in a so-called data lake; but rather, that data is constantly moving and flowing, more like data streams and rivers, according to Alan Nance, executive vice president at Virtual Clarity Ltd.

Steve Roberts
Offering Manager, Big Data on Power Systems, IBM

Speeding up workloads: OpenPOWER takes aim at analytics and cognitive computing
All things in the enterprise come down to the data center. Data must be stored, presented, moved and processed. Most importantly, data must live somewhere, and it’s to everyone’s benefit if that somewhere can serve up the data as quickly as possible.

Christoph Streubert
Sr. Director, Big Data Strategy & Go-to-Market, SAP

When it comes to big data, should businesses ‘go live or go home’?
The ongoing digital transformation of business is all about big data. It’s been said that data is the new oil; it needs to be refined and distilled to extract its true value so that businesses can take advantage of it. However, for many companies, getting on the big data bandwagon is not a question of technology, it’s a struggle of two very different ways of thinking, according to Christoph Streubert, senior director of big data strategy and go-to-market at SAP SE.

Chief Technology Strategist, EMEA Digital Solutions, HPE

An area that is moving forward at a rapid pace with this technology is Europe, where countries are building smarter cities, factories and transportation while embracing mobility.

Raj Verma
President & COO, Hortonworks

Beware impostors in open-source paradigm shift, says Hortonworks COO
Startups might yet make good on so-called broken promises of open-source big data software if they spike the punch with a proprietary ingredient. But then why call themselves “open” at all, asked Raj Verma, president and chief operating officer of Hortonworks Inc.
