Tomorrow you will have an opportunity to join another exciting webinar on How to build Big Data applications for retail analysis using SAP HANA by John Appleby @applebyj. John has always been passionate about new technology. He cut his teeth helping global financial services and consumer goods companies build data warehouses to manage their business - especially when they want run faster. These days, he travels weekly across continents, helping clients differentiate themselves using analytics technologies. It has involved him building a team to design the solution, make it work and lead it through to successful completion. He is a strong advocate of in-memory computing and how it is radically changing the face of business. So you will have the opportunity to interact with him and ask him about SAP HANA, or about any other data platform like DB2 BLU, Hadoop or MongoDB for that matter. John is very passionate that giving back to the community reaps long-term rewards and this has shaped the last few years of his career - being a contributor to knowledge sharing websites as an SAP Mentor; and a sometime advisor to Wall Street investors on emerging technologies and those companies bringing to market new innovations. When he is not busy designing in-memory apps, you may find him pounding the pavement to the beat of music in the hilly suburbs of Philadelphia, or traveling the world to meet new people and new cultures.
