Big Data Analytics Workshop for UT Systems

February 25, 2014 in Austin, TX
AT&T Conference Center

On Tuesday, February 25, from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the AT&T Conference Center in Austin, there will be a workshop to better understand how you can leverage the existing UT Splunk license and Hunk analytics to analyze data that resides in Hadoop environments. We will start the session with an overview of core Splunk and lunch.

Splunk's core capability to index, search and analyze data is very applicable to use cases beyond IT Security. Research teams are working to mine big data sets with technologies like Hadoop . However, traditional analytics tools aren't designed for the diversity and size of these big data sets. Exporting data sets can be a challenge since they can be too large to move out of Hadoop to in-memory analytics stores. Splunk's core capability and purpose built "Hunk" application enables organizations to detect patterns and find anomalies across terabytes or petabytes of raw data in Hadoop without specialized skill sets, fixed schemas or months of development. Using Hunk, you can experience dramatic improvements in the speed and simplicity of getting insights from big data in Hadoop.

Splunk's Hunk could be leveraged in various research fields, for example:


12:30 p.m. - Introductions

2:00 p.m. - Splunk on Hadoop - Hunk 101 and Demo

4:00 p.m. - Close
