Saint John Bound – The T4G Big Data Congress

Headed out this evening up to Saint John, New Brunswick for the T4G Big Data Congress. I’ll be up there speaking on a panel with associates from a number of  Hadoop vendors including Cloudera and Hortonworks on our respective big data platforms.

It will be interesting to see how the audience is currently interpreting big data and the challenges that they face, and I will share my perspectives from the event in the coming days.

I’m personally looking forward to hearing from Tom Davenport, who will be speaking with us as well.  Competing on Analytics came out as I was kicking off my 1st tour of duty for IBM in the warehousing space, productizing the old ‘balanced configuration unit (BCU)’ into our first data warehouse ‘appliance’, the Balanced Warehouse. Yeah seems like a decade ago. It will be very interesting to hear his current view on big data in his session and the associated application of analytics.

I’ve never actually been up to Saint John, but have already been warned by the local office that the temperatures will be a bit on the cold side. From 0 to -15 to be exact. Ouch. Reminds me of the MONY tower back in the day in Syracuse – Would always be interesting to make a run to Marshal Street at that negative temperature mark flashing in the sky.
