Hue Holleran is a professional consultant specialising in RDBMS and BigData solutions: SQL Server since v4.2, Oracle since v7 and Hadoop since its first releases - and all versions of those products since. Hue's interest in BigData was piqued when he read Google's BigTable paper in 2006 and experienced that "Eureka!" moment.
After more than 20-years as a consultant to over 100-organisations - and the largest global brands in various industries - he has established a reputation for developing innovative BUT practical solutions. Since developing in mainframe 'C' and DBase/FoxBase+ in the 1980's and Oracle and SQL Server in the 1990's, Hue's current interest is in multi-terabyte and multi-threaded BigData solutions.
Having frequently presented on various topics since presenting for Microsoft at all UK venues for the launch of Visual Studio 6 in 1998, Hue's current focus is on leveraging the database's enterprise capabilities to implement truly robust and resilient systems that retain excellent performance even in the most challenging of environments.
