How to Leverage Mainframe Data with Hadoop: Bridging the Gap Between Big Iron & Big Data.

September 25, 2013 @ 12pm ET | 9am PT

Your mainframe powers mission-critical applications throughout the enterprise - collecting, generating and processing tons of corporate data. You know you can’t afford to neglect this critical data, but there’s no easy way to exploit it. Without the right tools, you'd have to mess with thousands of lines of Java, Pig, Hive, COBOL and more ... until now!
