Successful businesses like Walmart, Intuit, and others realize the strategic value of managing big data well. But big data can bring big dilemmas: How can I easily tackle and direct high velocity data to where I need it to be? What strategies should I use to distribute big data across multiple data centers, the cloud, and various geographies? How can I easily scale to smartly query and analyze data in the multi-tera/petabyte range?

In this webinar, you’ll get real answers from the experts at Forrester, SourceNinja, and DataStax on the practical big data strategies and technologies you need to be looking at to gain an edge over your business competitors.
