ODPi and ASF Collaboration: Ask Us Anything! - John Mertic, ODPi & Jim Jagielski, Apache Software Foundation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) has long been the champion of open source projects that compose the larger Apache Hadoop ecosystem. ODPi is complementary to those efforts, solely focused on easing integration and standardization for downstream application vendors and end-users that build upon Apache Hadoop®. Since ODPi’s launch in 2015, there has been some confusion around how its work may overlap, or potentially compete, with that of the ASF.

Founding Member and Board Director - Apache Software Foundation, Jim Jagielski, and Director of Program Management for ODPi, John Mertic, will clear up this confusion. During the discussion, attendees will learn how ASF and ODPi are collaborating to accelerate enterprise adoption of Apache Hadoop and big data technologies. There will also be an open Q&A, where attendees can ask about ASF and ODPi projects, their work together, where the big data ecosystem is heading, and anything else that comes to mind.
