Making connections and deriving business value is at the heart of big data and analytics innovation. Launching an online community that connects engineers, customers, partners and academics that are building and deploying big data technology is speeding the innovation process from the shared experience, expertise, knowledge and best practices. Recently Teradata Aster worked with Mzinga to create a Developer Portal, designed to foster innovation among the elite group of data scientists, developers and programmers who use SQL MapReduce to further the science and practice of analyzing data for business value. In this joint session, Mzinga and Teradata Aster will discuss the portal’s role in driving relevant conversations, innovation, and significance in the context of current trends in big data analytics.
* Best practices for creating a community that fosters sharing and innovation
* How data scientists benefit from the community to more efficiently learn about and apply Teradata Aster SQL-MapReduce technology to real business analysis and decision-making
* The power of collaboration features to inspire and foster learning, brand visibility, collaboration and support
* Metrics and ROI received from the community and benefits for customers and end users.
