Kicking off the conference with the event's opening keynote on October 29 at 8:55am ET, Cloudera Chief Strategy Officer and Chairman, Mike Olson will discuss how Hadoop is shaping the trajectory of the data management industry, offering insights and predictions for how it will ultimately shape the enterprise datacenter.

"Hadoop's velocity -- its dramatic increase in capabilities over the last several years, and its pace of adoption by large enterprises for big data workloads -- has been nothing short of extraordinary. The speed of that change has shaken the very foundation of the technology industry, and it's clear that the revolution has only begun," said Olson. "At Cloudera, we're proud to be driving the product and the business innovation that will make Big Data dominant in the years to come. With our partners, we're empowering a fast-growing number of organizations to ask bigger questions. The second year of our joint conference with O'Reilly promises to be the most exciting, and best-attended, Hadoop World yet."
