Upcoming SAP Big Data Talks


Interested in hearing more about how SAP and “Big Data” integrate as part of your overall IT and business strategy? There’s a series of new webinars available. First, a web seminar I’m presenting tomorrow:

Nobody Agrees on Anything to do with Big Data – Except That It’s a Big Deal

What is Big Data? Nobody agrees on the definition, but everybody agrees that it’s a big new part of the business technology landscape. This session will touch on why there are so many different definitions, talk about some of the big trends in analytics, and look at some examples of companies using “big data” today.

When: October 15 2013 4PM CET 7AM PST

Second, the next in the “Big Data Tweet Chat” series, with Irfan Khan of SAP and Ari Zilka of Hortonworks, moderated by me:

We invite Hortonworks CTO Ari Zilka and SAP’s Irfan Khan to chat with us about our recently announced integrated approach, and how it can solve even the biggest of your “Big Data” challenges.
