Cloud. DevOps. Big Data. Analytics.

They’re all the buzzwords we’re hearing everyday and that’s because they are critical to getting your business—large or small, new or old—through the next half of this decade successfully. Getting started with some of these technologies and strategies can be rather daunting. I mean just Big Data alone is pretty daunting. How big is “Big“?

We’ve recently published the beginning of the Big Data Actionable Architecture on Bluemix series, starting with secured hybrid data warehouses. This workshop series introduces you to what Big Data and Analytics capabilities are, how Bluemix supports them, and then gets you hands-on with Bluemix in walking through a real-world use case:

The workshop series will cover additional use cases and services provided by Bluemix to support the reference architecture shown above. An upcoming publication to the Cloud Standards Customer Council’s Resource Hub will map many more of these capabilities to what is needed to be successful with your applications today. Covering components from data intake through enhanced enterprise applications, you will learn of the necessary Big Data & Analytics components, as well as how they flow together:

Solution Architecture for Data Warehouse Augmentation

In the opening entry in the series, you will deploy an application to Bluemix while leveraging data on-premise, in a simulated on-premise System of Record. This is done by leveraging the Virtual Machine service on Bluemix, along with the Secure Gateway component, to simulate how you can connect your enterprise applications to Bluemix and access your on-premise data today!

Sample Big Data application

Deploying a sample application on top of this architecture, you’ll see how the data can flow between the components, and what is necessary for you to deploy your own application on top of it. The sample will show you how to deploy an application with its source code stored in a remote repository through IBM Bluemix DevOps Services and manage that for future updates.

Get Started Today!

If you want to get started with Bluemix and Big Data, this is the series for you! Check it out at Big Data Workshop #1 and check back soon for future entries in the series!
