MapR Technologies' Chief Application Architect Ted Dunning to Speak at Predictive Analytics Innovation Summit

Session Focuses on a Unified Platform for Big Data Analytics

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Feb 14, 2013) - MapR Technologies, Inc., the Hadoop technology leader, today announced that Ted Dunning, chief application architect, will be a featured speaker at the Predictive Analytics Summit taking place on February 20 - 21, 2013 at the Westin San Diego in San Diego, CA.

The session, titled "One Platform for all Big Data Analytics," will be held on Thursday, February 21 at 10:30 am - 11:30 am. Until recently, a defining characteristic of Big Data platforms has been that they are highly specialized. Hadoop didn't really deal with ad hoc queries, relational engines couldn't handle scale, noSQL and search engines couldn't handle SQL and none of the common platforms could really combine real-time and long-time analyses. Solutions are emerging, however, that allow all of these capabilities to be supported by a single platform. Mr. Dunning will discuss how one such platform could provide an answer to many Big Data questions.
