Syncsort a Featured Partner at Cloudera Sessions Roadshow

Attendees to Learn How to Effectively Address Their Big Data Challenges

WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J. – September 04, 2013

Syncsort, a global leader in Big Data integration solutions, today announced that it will, once again, be a featured partner in the 2013 Cloudera Sessions Roadshow.  The second part of the series, taking place from September 11 to October 17, will introduce organizations to a low risk, productive way to integrate the Apache Hadoop stack into their IT infrastructure and help them plan effectively to achieve successful enterprise analytic data management.

As a featured partner, Syncsort will be on hand to share experiences with real-world deployments and discuss best practices for achieving operational efficiency in Big Data Integration, including the most resource and cost efficient ways to leverage mainframe and legacy data with Hadoop.  With over 40 years of mainframe experience, Syncsort can address the challenges of ingesting and processing mainframe and legacy data in Hadoop and share strategies to bridge the technical, skill and cost gaps.

“Company leaders are relying on IT to leverage Big Data to transform their business and gain competitive advantage, but getting from Point A to Point Z with the least risk has been a challenge,” said Tim Stevens, vice president business and corporate development, Cloudera. “We are pleased to have Syncsort join us in helping attendees learn how to deploy Hadoop to achieve this goal.”

The series begins in San Francisco with five additional U.S. cities to follow:
  • 11 September - San Francisco, California
  • 13 September - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  • 18 September - Jersey City, New Jersey
  • 19 September - Miami, Florida

“We’re looking forward to going on the road again with Cloudera to share knowledge and experiences with some of the country’s leading businesses,” said Bryan Ashley, vice president business development, data integration business, Syncsort.  “Minimizing risks in deployment while maximizing value from Big Data can be quite challenging and the Roadshow provides a great forum for us to exchange ideas, provide our expertise and learn from the companies we speak with.”
