Noel has spoken at numerous industry conferences around the globe and is quoted frequently in industry publications such as CNET News, Computerworld, eWeek, InfoWorld, InformationWeek, Forbes, Search.com, The Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times. He has taught several technical and management workshops on big data, data management, data integration, building scalable apps, in-memory platforms, and data virtualization.
