[ESG Blog] Strata Data Conference Gets Good

Last week we saw the rebranding of Strata + Hadoop World as the new Strata Data Conference. This name change reflects the nature of the content, which is decreasingly about specific Hadoop projects and increasingly about how to get analytics value from any data anywhere.

[ESG Blog] The Big Data Bubble Rises

As the father of two girls, I have deep appreciation for a fascination with bubbles. They are easy to make, they're shiny, and they float carelessly with the breeze.
