In the Mix: How Native Integration Improves MapReduce and Hadoop

The either/or question pervades the world of analytics. With so many options for crunching numbers, deciding which avenue to take can be difficult. One positive trend is the convergence of open source solutions with traditional database technologies, merging the best of both approaches. Check out this episode of The Briefing Room to hear veteran database Analyst Robin Bloor explain how new service layers are integrating the many available options for the legwork of analysis.

Bloor will be briefed by David Jonker and Courtney Claussen of Sybase, an SAP Company. Jonker will describe several of the key features in the latest iteration of Sybase IQ, a columnar database that’s been on the market for more than two decades. Claussen will provide details on a litany of improvements, including: a native MapReduce API, Predictive Model Markup Language (PMML) support, integration with Hadoop, and an expanded library of statistical and data mining algorithms that leverage the power of Sybase IQ PlexQ® massively parallel processing (MPP) technology.
