"I used the time to connect and learn from others who are down in the trenches, making these big data platforms work at a handful of large enterprises here in West Michigan. It was invaluable to talk to people that understand the various platform vendors out there and learn about the tool choices driving their IoT, data, and data lake infrastructure." Excerpt from "Trends out of 2017’s Big Data Ignite", by Mac Fowler - a digital strategist, product development specialist, and 2017 Big Data Ignite Participant
