OK, a New York minute? In less than 60 seconds let’s see what’s going on with Cisco at Strata+Hadoop 2016 New York City next week. The event is the largest Big Data event in the Americas and we look forward to attending each year.

Cool Things…

We have a lot happening with learning and listening opportunities in our Strata+Hadoop Booth #833.  For Learning, our in-booth theater has 15+ speaking sessions scheduled. Come by and learn from our Cisco Big Data Subject Matter Experts on Analytics, Big Data, Data Virtualization, Hadoop Infrastructure solutions, ROI/TCO,  and more…

For Listening, our SME’s will be available in our Meet the Expert area in the Cisco booth.  Stop on by, grab a chair, and meet with them.  Our SMEs are top notch –  some of our best Factory and Field folks will be present at Strata+Hadoop. They can listen to your specific questions be it on Apache Spark, Hadoop, Lambda architectures UCS, etc. It’s a great opportunity for some 1:1 consulting.

Fun Things… 


Data After Dark!

It’s Strata+Hadoop, right? Cisco again will be a top sponsor for Data After Dark, the show’s main social event. This year the event is being held on the historic USS Intrepid. We look forward to ‘logging off’ from our trade show duties and socializing with you. Stop by for a drink and let’s chat.

StrataDroneSwag, Swag, and More Swag!

It’s a trade show, right? We’ve got some cool Cisco branded handouts for you during your Cisco booth visit. Stop on by and grab some. Be the envy of your office when you return back to work from New York City.



Speaking and Other Things…

In addition to our in-booth theater sessions we have Cisco speakers lined up during the show. Raghu Nambiar, CTO of Cisco’s Data Center, business will provide a quick view into his thoughts on “Business Insights Driven by Speed” during the early Thursday morning Keynote session.

Later Thursday morning, Cisco presents “Big Data and Analytics with Cisco UCS: Lessons Learned and Platform Considerations”. Rajesh Shroff, one of our Factory-based Big Data Architects will describe best practices for your Data Center infrastructure architectures.
