Going the Full Hadoop for BI: Why EBates Did It
How do you manage data and deliver insights when data volumes are exploding? Does this modern data challenge require more than a ‘traditional’ approach?
With 30 million+ members globally and hundreds of terabytes of data, Ebates' BI Team moved to a non-traditional approach as a matter of necessity. They defined what a non-traditional approach looks like and kept their Tableau business users happy.
In this recorded session, EBates BI leader, Mark Stange-Tregear, shares why and how his team successfully transitioned from traditional BI on a traditional data-warehouse, to "all in" self-service BI on Hadoop. Mark shares
- Why: Why he chose to run BI on Hadoop at Ebates
- How: How Ebates made the transition; the plan, challenges and end-goals
- What: What he actually did, what he achieved, and lessons learned
