Graph: The Missing Link in Big Data Analytics

Graph analytics is gaining traction in the world of big data and IoT. From solving real-world problems such as detecting cyberattacks and creating value from IoT sensor data to precisely identifying drug interactions faster than ever before, graph has become a powerhouse in detecting never-before-seen connections and emergent patterns. It’s critical to understand how graph can be added to traditional Hadoop® and Spark™ workflows for successful results.

Join us Wednesday, March 16, for a live online chat, “Graph: The Missing Link in Big Data Analytics,” to learn and discuss all things graph analytics. You can easily participate using a Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook account. Hear from industry experts from Deloitte, Mphasis and Cray who are using graph today to solve complex, real-world problems in fields such as cybersecurity, precision medicine and risk management.

How to participate:

The chat will be hosted on CrowdChat, which organizes tweets into streams of conversations. We’ll start the conversation thread from the Cray Twitter handle (@cray_inc), and everyone who wants to participate can comment, ask questions or just watch the discussion from the sidelines. You can participate by logging in with Twitter, LinkedIn or Facebook.

Bring your questions or offer your expertise alongside our panel of industry experts and chat hosts:
