Big Data Analytics: What’s Next?

The power of scalable infrastructure needs to be supplemented with nifty data mining and machine learning tools

While a majority of Fortune 1000 companies are en-route to understanding Hadoop and adopting it in their technology stack, startups in the bay area and elsewhere have started asking the important and inevitable question: “What’s Next?”.

Hadoop for the first time has allowed us to analyze massive amounts of data without necessarily indulging in expensive proprietary hardware or software. However, adoption of Hadoop alone isn’t necessarily helping businesses make smarter decisions or unearth completely new facts that could lead to immense growth of top line. The power of scalable infrastructure needs to be supplemented with nifty data mining and machine learning tools, better visualization of results, and easier ways to track and analyze the findings over a period of time. Besides, there is the entire realm of real-time analytics, which is beyond the batch oriented nature of Hadoop.

A conference scheduled to take place at the Santa Clara Convention Center on January 28, 2013 answers some of these very important questions around what’s happening in the field of “big data” and what’s to come next. Its a great 1 day conference that has a lot of interesting topics, covered by an awesome line-up of great speakers. In order to take advantage of some favorable pricing please register by January 22, 2013 and save a whole $100, as compared to the onsite price. In addition, as a reader of my blog, don’t forget to take advantage of the additional 20% discount, which you can avail by using the code: “SHAS“. See you all there!

I am a technology entrepreneur, innovator, author and, as some say, a “thought leader”. I like to solve challenging computing problems, especially those that drive innovation. Being a polyglot programmer, I can program fluently in many languages, including Java, Python, C++, C, Ruby, ActionScript, JavaScript, Objective-C, Haskell, Scala, Clojure, PHP, Groovy, Lisp and Perl. I must admit that I like to learn programming languages and if there is a new interesting one coming, I wouldn’t be far behind getting to grips with it. Over the last many years I have built some cutting edge enterprise and consumer software applications, many of which have leveraged large data sets and the web based programming paradigms. This means I also know a lot about data bases and persistence. I am very conversant with relational databases, embedded databases, object databases, text based data and XML. Having leveraged web based programming paradigms, I have first hand experience with a lot of web development frameworks, including but not limited to Adobe Flex, Spring MVC, Rails, Grails and Django. Not to forget, I obviously have worked a lot with HTML, JS and CSS. My experience and interest are varied and diverse and range a wide spectrum of application development realms that include the server, the client and the middleware. Besides, programming, I am also deeply interested in mathematics and theoretical computer science. This motivates me to bring my knowledge of applied mathematics, statistical modeling, artificial intelligence and sometimes simply data structures, to good use, when I build applications. A couple of domains like financial mathematics and scientific computing seem to have been good fit for such expertise. I am an ardent supporter of open source software and try and contribute to open source code bases and causes. I like the plurality and variety that software development offers; the choice of programming languages, the abundant availability of tools and libraries, the existence of multiple operating systems and the possibility of varied software development methodologies. As a member of the technology community, I am an active contributor to the ever evolving software development languages, methodologies and standards. I am an expert group member on a number of JCP (Java Community Process) specifications, for example JSRs 274, 283, 299, 301 & 312, and have been recognized as an Adobe Flex Champion.I run and organize a few community events like Flex Camp Wall Street, Show Ramp and Polyglot World. I bring together all my expertise in terms of services and products via my primary venture, Treasury of Ideas LLC, in which I play the role of a Managing Partner. Treasury of Ideas LLC, through its focus on innovation and value optimization, offers many best of the breed services and products and has incubated many ideas to help translate them to reality. Our clients range from large enterprises, government agencies, not-for-profit organizations to promising new startups. I write regularly in many technical journals and magazines, present in seminars and mentor developers and architects. I have authored a few books, including Advanced Flex 3 (friends of Ed/APress, 2008) and Professional BlazeDS (Wrox/Wiley, 2009) , and am in the process of authoring a few more. You can learn all about my books and public talks by browsing through the Publish & Present page at www.shanky.org.
