Designing for Data Everywhere: An Architecture Discussion

It is likely that your organization has, or plans to have, data on-premise, data at the edge, and data in one or more public clouds. To meet your business’ needs you are required to manage and process your data in all of these locations. Governing, securing, transforming, querying, and deriving value from this data in heterogeneous locations and environments demands a consistent set of tools for administrators, security teams, data scientists, and analysts. In this talk, Hortonworks Founder Alan Gates will discuss how the right architecture achieves this consistency today, as well as show how that architecture will evolve as your data continues to grow.
