Strata Conference 2012
Making Data Work
In 2005, Tim O'Reilly predicted: "Data is the Next Intel Inside." Today the future he envisioned is unfolding at a startling pace. O'Reilly's Strata Conference brings together the leading minds in big data: the decision makers using the power of big data to drive business strategy as well as the practitioners who collect, analyze, and manipulate the data. Strata and Hadoop World have now joined forces to create the largest gathering of the Apache Hadoop community in the world, with emphasis on hands-on and business sessions on the Hadoop ecosystem.
The Business of Data
A connected world, brimming with data and fueled by near-limitless computing power, is changing everything about how we live, love, work, and play. It's a change that offers tremendous opportunity—to transform business, end corruption, teach the world, and help society tackle its biggest challenges. And yet it creates new threats, from privacy concerns to Orwellian dystopia. What's clear is that the future belongs to those who understand how to collect and use their data successfully. And that future happens at Strata.
Strata Conference delivers the nuts-and-bolts foundation for building a data-driven business—the latest on the skills, tools, and technologies you need to make data work—alongside the forward-looking insights and ahead-of-the-curve thinking O'Reilly is known for.
Strata Conference & Hadoop World will bring three full days of inspiring keynotes, intensely practical & information-rich sessions, a sponsor pavilion with key players and products, and plenty of networking events to the East Coast. Strata has a laser-sharp focus on the big data issues that are shaping the business, finance, media, and government worlds.

Until recently, IBM’s Power Platform was looked upon as being the system that hosted IBM’s flavor of UNIX and proprietary operating system called IBM i. These servers often are found in medium-size businesses running ERP, CRM and financials for on-premise customers. By enabling the Power platform to run the Linux OS, IBM now has positioned Power to be the platform of choice for those already running Linux that are facing scalability issues, especially customers looking at analytics, big data or cloud computing.
￼Running Linux on IBM’s Power hardware offers some obvious benefits, including improved processing speed and memory bandwidth, inherent security, and simpler deployment and management. But if you look beyond the impressive architecture, you’ll also find an open ecosystem that has given rise to a strong, innovative community, as well as an inventory of system and network management applications that really help leverage the benefits offered by running Linux on Power.Get the Guide
