Topic :

Transforming Raw Data into Relevant Analytics

Abstract :

It sure is nice throwing all of your raw data into your Hive-supported Hadoop cluster, but what happens when you need to extract relevant information to build reports for your stakeholders?  What if the format of the data is difficult or impossible to query from business reporting tools in its raw unstructured state? This presentation will explore some of the techniques for building a successful "Analytics Tier" to solve such problems, and will cover the ETL process Staples uses to interpret and transform its data into a format that provides immediate relevance and benefit for the business.
