MapR Customers Share Big Data Experiences

MapR Technologies welcomed more than 100 people Wednesday to a one-day Convergence event in San Diego, where local companies like Qualcomm and genomic startup LunaDNA shared stories about their big data journeys.

Dawn Barry, the president and co-founder of LunaDNA, provided a compelling keynote address on the power of genomics and the benefits that it will generate for humankind. While genomic data will eventually lead to great progress in disease prevention, food yield, and public safety (to name a few areas), there’s a lot of work to be done in the meantime.
