DECEMBER

The Briefing Room with Robin Bloor and Infobright

Outside the Box: Alternate Query Models and the Future of Big Data

How big a role will Big Data play in the future of analytics? There’s no question that all flavors of Big Data are here to stay, especially the rising waters of machine-generated data. Cramming all the details you want into a giant data warehouse will no longer be tenable, which means other, more federated solutions must arise. That’s where alternate query models will save the day.

Register for this episode of The Briefing Room to hear veteran Analyst Dr. Robin Bloor as he explains how the widening landscape of Big Data will continue to transform the manner in which analytics are done. He’ll be briefed by Don DeLoach of Infobright, who will tout his company’s Big Data strategy, which focuses on greatly expediting the process of doing analysis on large sets of federated data.

The Briefing Room with Robin Bloor and VelociData

Five Critical Success Factors for Big Data and Traditional BI

Most Big Data discussions focus on analytics, but business users need more than that. They need speed, because most opportunities these days are transient and must be acted on quickly. Bottlenecks in the delivery of analytic results often occur on the gathering and transformation side, where massive volumes of data must be validated, converted, masked or otherwise transformed before hitting the analytics engine. Big Data is rapidly overrunning conventional approaches, creating requirements for accelerated, hybrid systems.

Register for this episode of the Briefing Room to hear veteran IT Analyst Dr. Robin Bloor, as he explains how a combination of innovations is dramatically changing how companies can solve serious data transformation challenges. Robin will be briefed by Ron Indeck of VelociData, who will tout their record-breaking data operations appliance. He’ll also discuss five critical success factors for achieving optimal performance, including the necessary infrastructure for executing data transformations at wire speed.

The Briefing Room with John O’Brien and Birst

Data Discovery and BI - Is there Really a Difference?

While the disciplines of business intelligence and discovery certainly overlap, there are key distinctions between the two, both in terms of design point and user interface. While traditionally it is believed different architectures are required to address these differing analytic needs, is that really the case? Or is discovery simply another key capability within an overall BI platform?

Register for this episode of The Briefing Room to learn from veteran Analyst John O’Brien of Radiant Advisors as he outlines best practices for enabling high-quality business intelligence and discovery, and the architectural capabilities to enable both. He’ll be briefed by Brad Peters of Birst who will tout his company’s cloud BI platform. In particular, Peters will demonstrate how the Birst architecture was especially designed for enterprise-caliber BI and argue for a more inclusive future BI architecture.
