Know, Don’t Guess: Telemetry Analysis with
Hadoop and Platfora
Wednesday, December 11th 
12:00pm EST, 9:00am PST

Today, it is possible to combine telemetry data with other sources, such as customer support call logs, demographic data and CRM data, but it is not easy to interrogate that data and make fact-based decisions. Hadoop has made this cheap and scalable, but systems need to be flexible and need to be able to respond to the changes in the data model, and allow the end-user to easily explore the informationfor insights.

In this webinar, you will learn how Platfora has instrumented its systems with detailed telemetry data and leverages that information continuously for product and business decisions.

Join this #factbased webinar to hear:

-The architecture behind Platfora’s own internal telemetry solution using acombination of Hadoop, open source and off the shelf components.

-How Platfora leverages product telemetry data to make better decisions, faster and the interesting insights we were able to achieve.

-Techniques for incorporating multiple sources of data to achieve a 360 view of the customer.

-The pitfalls we encountered deploying our telemetry system & process with suggestions on how to avoid them!
