Why we chose Hadoop

Summary: Inmar processes 2.3 billion coupons, 700 million pharmacy claims and 525 million returned goods annually for over 100,000 retail locations and 9000 manufacturers. In 2012, we made the strategic decision to hire a leading data scientist and use our transactional data across all lines of business to perform analytics and generate new data products in order to become strategic partners with our clients. This session covers the technologies and vendors we evaluated, our current architecture and why we selected each component. The presentation will also cover Inmars implementation of the Lambda architecture, what worked and didn't work for us and where we are going next.

About Angela: I started out as a software developer back in 1996 in Denver, CO, doing Client/Server development in PowerBuilder. I am now a DBA/BI Developer, living in High Point, NC and I love what I do. I’ve worked with all versions of SQL Server & I’ve worn all the hats that come with dealing with SQL Server throughout the years: developer, administrator, data architect and BI developer. In my spare time you can probably find me in the pool, I’m an avid US Masters swimmer.
