REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 7, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Versant Corporation (VSNT) (Nasdaq:VSNT), a worldwide leader in developing data management software infrastructure for complex, mission-critical applications, announced today that it will host a webinar that will include expert insight from IDC Research Vice President Carl Olofson . The webinar will address both the question of "What is big data?", and also what the future holds for enterprises that must derive value from the massive volumes, immense complexity, and highly dynamic nature of modern data models and information networks.
During the webinar, "Big Data Management: Trends and Directions," information management and data integration software expert, Carl Olofson, will explore the technologies at the crux of the big data boom, including Hadoop, Graph and OO DBMS, and NoSQL DBMS. Tackling big data is paramount to a company's success, but the flood of new technologies makes choosing the right one difficult. This webinar will address big data technology use cases, helping attendees discover which technology is appropriate for their specific business case.
The webinar will be held on Wednesday, May 9, 2012 at 9:00 a.m. PDT/12:00 p.m. EDT, and will be hosted by Versant's Vice President, Product Strategy and Marketing, Dirk Bartels, who, together with Carl, will focus on exploring answers to some of big data's most pressing questions:
- How do we define big data?
- How can big data benefit our businesses?
- Which big data technology is right for my use case?
- How can we extract value from a large volume and variety of data?
- Are there now, or will there ever be, a single big data solution that spans across all industries?
- What is the next big data trend?
"By now, IT leaders have acknowledged the effect big data can have on their business. The big question now, though, is how do they manage, analyze, and leverage it," said Bartels. "Carl is widely acknowledged as a true thought leader and expert in this area, and the material he has put together for this presentation is really intriguing. Attendees will not only receive a basic understanding of big data and how their company should be leveraging it, but how best to extract value and meaning from a large volume and variety of data."
