Arcadia Data Touts BI Market Momentum in Marketing and Financial Service Environments by Sharing New Hadoop In-Production Use Cases

SAN MATEO, CA–(Marketwired – Sep 26, 2016) – Arcadia Data, provider of the industry’s Native Hadoop Visualization and business intelligence (BI) platform for Big Data, invites Strata + Hadoop World attendees to connect with company founders and customers at three sessions taking place over the course of the conference from September 27-29, 2016 at Javits Center in New York.

Arcadia Data enters Strata + Hadoop World with strong enterprise customer momentum just one year after the launch of Arcadia Enterprise, a full-scale visual analytics and BI solution that runs natively in Hadoop. Most notably, Arcadia will be debuting its enterprise case study with customer P&G’s Terry McFadden. A three-year project in the making, the consumer-products giant was able to perfect its agile data management environment with Arcadia to increase marketing analytics engagement for its international business user base.

In addition, Arcadia will be hosting a financial services panel discussion that will feature predictions from experts at Pershing LLC (Bank of New York Mellon), Credit Suisse, FirstMark Capital and Nordea about how Hadoop has moved from a storage cost killer to contender for the next do-or-die platform in financial services.

Visit Arcadia Data at booth 527 to see the industry’s only Native Hadoop Visualization and BI Platform for Big Data. Arcadia Enterprise features a unique on-cluster architecture that gives business users, analysts and data scientists real-time interactive access to trillions of data points. Without the need to add hardware or pull standalone extracts, Arcadia Data crushes the stack of legacy data management technologies and speeds time to insight across all of an organization’s big data.

Following is a full listing of Arcadia Data’s show activities:
