This session will explore the big data scene as it relates to business intelligence.

We’ll go hands on with the Eclipse Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT) project, which now offers native support to Hadoop through Hive queries. We’ll also cover how BIRT can access other Big Data sources such as Cassandra and MongoDB so developers can display their data in a stylized tabular or graphical nature which is extremely customizable using the BIRT designer.
