Houston Hadoop Meetup - David Ramirez presents Informatica

At the recent meeting, David Ramirez of Informatica presented the platform and explained how it allows to save time in data modeling when it comes to Big Data. His slides are found here, and they also contain a link to a demo on YouTube.

Keep in mind that David is working with Oil & Gas accounts in Houston - so you may get some interesting information from the slides.

Pizza was provided by Elephant Scale, and the meeting hosted by Microsoft. Thanks to Tiru for helping with hosting.

  3. Promising startups are snatched: Hortonwork acquired Onyara, the maker of NiFi
  4. The elephant himself grew up - see this picture :)
