Yesterday’s (3/12/14) meetup at the HP Vertica Cambridge office was a huge success. With some pretty phenomenal networking (and quesadillas) we packed the top floor with people buzzing about everything Big Data and HP Vertica. After the introductions, our VP & GM Colin Mahony kicked off the presentations, sharing with us his passion for analytics, data warehousing, and the exciting news that HP Vertica has made it into Leaders Quadrant of the Gartner Magic Quadrant. Following that, the rest of the team demoed several of the new and exciting innovations HP Vertica has to offer. On a final note, dont’t forget to sign up for the upcoming HP Vertica Big Data Conference 2014 coming this August!
