Hadoop, MapReduce, Hive, Hbase, Lucene, Solr? The only thing growing faster than enterprise data these days is the landscape of big data tools. These tools, which are designed to help organizations turn big data into opportunities, are gaining deeper insight into massive volumes of information. A recent Gartner report predicts that enterprise data will increase by 650% over the next five years, which means that the time is now for IT decision makers to determine which big data tools are the best - and most cost-effective - for their organization.
In his session at the 10th International Cloud Expo, David Lucas, Chief Strategy Officer at GCE, will run through what enterprises really need to know about the growing set of big data tools - including those being leveraged by organizations today as well as the new and innovative tools just arriving on the scene. He will also help attendees gain greater insight on how to match the right data center tools to a specific enterprise challenge and what processes need to change to handle big data.
David Lucas is Chief Strategy Officer at GCE, responsible for the relationship management of the company's clients and potential clients. He has led every significant capture effort for GCE since 2005, and has been instrumental in championing the introduction of Service Oriented Architecture to the federal government.
With two decades of experience in corporate management, sales, business development, corporate strategy, marketing, and federal IT program management, Lucas has a proven track record for winning large contracts and delivering enterprise solutions for federal agencies. He is a noted speaker on enterprise financial system implementation and integration strategies. He serves on the advisory boards for several federal enterprise systems, and board member of the Federal Open Source Foundation, an organization dedicated to the promotion of open source software into the federal enterprise architecture.

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

Enterprises can achieve rigorous IT security as well as improved DevOps practices and Cloud economics by taking a new, cloud-native approach to application delivery. Because the attack surface for cloud applications is dramatically different than for highly controlled data centers, a disciplined and multi-layered approach that spans all of your processes, staff, vendors and technologies is required. This may sound expensive and time consuming to achieve as you plan how to move selected applicati...
