Hortonworks Sandbox for HDP and HDF is your chance to get started on learning, developing, testing and trying out new features. Each download comes preconfigured with interactive tutorials, sample data and developments from the Apache community.

It was a big pleasure for us to be part of the big TDWI family at the big european conference in Munich from 17.-19.06.2013. Together with our big partner MapR we had a big booth at a perfect place in the exhibition hall. MapR provides Apache Hadoop solutions for Big Data and extends comSysto‘s portfolio to offer a complete Big Data life cycle solution from idea to hardware to data analyses platform in operation for our customers. Thanks to all our customers, partners and interested parties to visit us at the conference booth. Congratulation to all our prize winners. Enjoy your trainings and Nexus 7.

rstatsNext to many interesting talks around data warehouse solutions there were some big discussions how Hadoop technologies can support or replace traditional warehouse solutions. With our tutorial “Using R for Business Intelligence in Big Data” presented by Dr. Markus Schmidberger we introduced participants to the powerful statistical software R. Covering topics as rmongodb and rmr2 Markus introduced concepts to use Big Data technologies as MongoDB and Hadoop within R. Using the RStudio IDE and a not big(single node) AWS based MapR clusters participants trained their self with real world examples in short exercises. The slides of the tutorial are available for download at the conference download page.
