In-Database Analytics Done Right

Bringing Applications within the Data Warehouse for
Faster, Deeper Analytics on Big Data

Featuring James Kobielus, Senior Analyst for Forrester Research

As they scale out in massively parallel grids, enterprise data warehouses (EDWs) increasingly offer the deepest pools of processing, memory, and storage in many companies. Enterprise IT professionals are tapping into this high-performance resource by pushing more application logic-both transactional and analytic-to a new generation of EDWs. Consequently, the EDW is evolving into a high-performance, feature-rich platform that supports advanced analytics, application logic, SQL-MapReduce (SQL-MR), and other industry-standard interfaces. In this Aster Data Webcast, Forrester senior analyst James Kobielus will discuss the EDW's-emerging role as an enabler for big data applications and analytics. This new approach, by leveraging and extending existing IT investments, creates a flexible, agile, scalable, and distributed platform for companies to create faster analytic applications which were not possible before.

Attend this webinar to hear James Kobielus, Senior Analyst with Forrester Research, explain how Data Warehousing, BI, Analytics, and the IT professionals are converging to create a new paradigm for big data analytic applications. Steve Wooledge, Senior Director of Marketing for Aster Data, will join James to provide real-world case studies and in-database analytics success stories.

Attend this session to learn:

  • Why traditional data management architectures make it difficult to integrate analytic and data-driven applications
  • New twists in traditional in-database analytics practices
  • How next-generation data management architectures support data-driven applications for advanced analytics and deep insights on big data

Jan. 28, 11 a.m. Pacific / 2 p.m. Eastern / 7 p.m. GMT
