Join Ben Weissman on a tour through the possibilities of Big Data Clusters (BDC). He will give a brief overview about the general architecture and components of a BDC, followed by a demo where he will integrate data from external and internal sources using the same connection for python and T-SQL, and lastly come up with a real-world analytics scenario that will show you how easy it is to use them. You may not even need petabytes of data to leverage what they have to offer!
