KNIME Meetup in Berlin: Big Data Integration Made Easy

- Beta Haus, Prinzessinnenstrasse 19-20, Berlin

With Big Data being one of the biggest challenges faced by IT today, we would like to invite you to a meetup that addresses just how simple it is to integrate big data platforms into KNIME.

Hadoop Hive, Cloudera, Hortonworks, HP Vertica, ParStream, and your own preferred big data platform can all be accessed easily from within the KNIME platform. Connecting to them is as easy as creating a node, throwing in the right credentials, and executing!

And, if you are struggling with SQL queries or the required script, you can always simplify your life by using the KNIME database nodes, which allow you to put together DB operations modularly and create complex SQL without writing code. The database nodes are SQL dialect independent, making you independent from your big data platform choice.

The talk will include an introduction to the current big data extension in KNIME and to its dedicated and generic nodes to access big data platforms. It will also contain some previews about future developments in this area!

Our sixth Berlin KNIME meetup will be at 08. April 2015, at Betahaus, in the Innospace room. The meetup is free and open to all KNIME interested people! Register at to attend at the meetup.
