Details about Designing Cloud Data Platforms
Designing Cloud Data Platforms PDF free download – This book is a true collaboration, a team effort between two very different people who share a love of data, new technology, and solving customer problems. We (Danil and Lynda) worked together at a data, analytics, and cloud IT services company for five years, where we partnered up to develop a cloud analytics practice. Danil, with his years of Hadoop experience, brought the technical chops, and Lynda brought the business perspective. We realized early on that both were needed to solve real-world data problems, and over time, Danil became more business-oriented and Lynda became knowledgeable enough about the cloud and data to contribute and even sometimes challenge Danil. The move from Hadoop as a big data platform to cloud-native platforms for data and analytics was an easy one—we both love the promise of cloud and big data. With the support of our employer, we built an internal team and designed and delivered not just awesome technology solutions but solutions that delivered real business outcomes using data and cloud. We did this for dozens of customers, and over time, we developed a set of best practices and knowledge. It was this experience and our unique mix of technical and business skills that let us believe that we could take a really complicated technical subject and make it understandable for a broader audience. We started with blog posts and white papers, and when Manning called and asked if Danil wanted to write another book (his first was on Hadoop), it seemed right and natural to do it together.
