Qubole CEO to Speak on Special Roundtable Webcast Hosted by DBTA

Mountain View, California (EastBayDaily) — Qubole™, a leading provider of the next generation Cloud Big Data platform, is pleased to announce that CEO Ashish Thusoo will participate in a special roundtable webcast this week. On Thursday, January 23, 2014 at 11:00 AM PST, Thusoo will join moderator Stephen Faig of DBTA to discuss “Big Data Analytics in the Cloud”.

Unisphere Research’s recent survey indicated that "analyzing more and different kinds of data" and "reducing information infrastructure costs" are the top challenges and concerns for North American organizations in 2014. As a result, there is a strong demand for education on the advantages and opportunities presented by the Cloud.

This roundtable session will focus on the platforms and techniques that are leading the way in Big Data today. The panel will also discuss the efficiency of operating in the Cloud, and why these technologies have converged to become the single most important model for enterprises to understand and deploy this year.

“I’m very excited to have Qubole represented on this webcast,” said Stephen Faig, moderator of the roundtable. “Ashish is an expert on Big Data and knows how to leverage the Cloud to create opportunities for organizations of all sizes. His insight is exactly what DBTA’s audience needs to succeed.”
