Get more out of a big data infrastructure

Whether your organization has already embraced big data or is just beginning its journey, deciding on the right hardware and software components can be a struggle. Identifying and understanding the most effective Hadoop distribution, visualization tools, and methods of integration with existing databases are essential to a long-term, successful big data deployment. World Wide Technology (WWT) developed its Big Data Technology Optimization Workshop to help customers better understand how to use big data technology efficiently and effectively.

During the workshop, WWT experts will share insights and use cases from organizations that have successfully deployed architectures specific to their big data needs. We will examine the costs, benefits and differences between architectures, technologies, processes and tools associated with big data infrastructure and data management. In addition, we’ll drill down on specific big data technology use cases. Some examples that have shown a clear path to ROI for customers include:

  • Data warehouse augmentation
  • ETL offload
  • Data lake creation
  • SAP HANA implementation
  • Big data stack build/optimization
  • Production support and sustainment

The Big Data Technology Optimization Workshop is customized based on your organization’s level of knowledge as well as strategic and technical big data goals. Whether you are new to the subject or have a good understanding of available big data solutions and are ready to take the next step, this workshop can help your organization better understand, manage and use big data infrastructure effectively.


The WWT Big Data Technology Optimization Workshop is a two- to four-hour technical and strategic whiteboard session designed to increase your understanding of the hardware and software infrastructure associated with big data analytics. Attendees will work with WWT experts to outline big data objectives and strategy, better understand available solutions and explore the benefits of each as they apply to business objectives.


This workshop gives your organization the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the impact of specific infrastructure and strategies for data management and use case implementation. In addition, you will gain insight into available big data hardware and software tools and their key benefits.
