Aster Data to Host Free Webinar on In-Database Analytics

“In-Database Analytics Done Right” to Explore Massively Parallel In-Database Execution as the Emerging Best Practice for Advanced Analytic Applications

What: Enterprise data warehouses (EDWs) are being called upon to handle far more data intensive applications than ever before and are evolving into a high-performance, feature-rich platform that supports advanced analytics, application logic, SQL-MapReduce, and other industry-standard interfaces. In this free webinar, Steve Wooledge, Senior Director of Marketing for Aster Data, will help attendees navigate this new reality by showcasing real-world case studies and in-database analytics success stories. James Kobielus, Senior Analyst at Forrester Research, Inc., has been closely monitoring and reporting on the rapidly evolving world of big data, predictive analytics, and EDWs. Kobielus will join Aster Data to share some of his most recent research findings, explore new strategies for analyzing big data, and provide insights on the new paradigm of big data analytic applications.

Attendees of this session will learn:

  • Why traditional databases are not architected to handle advanced analytics and data-driven applications
  • How today’s IT professionals are addressing the limitations of traditional databases
  • What is being done to ensure next-generation databases can support in-database analytics and drive deep insights in big data

Attendees of the webinar will also receive a free copy of the Forrester report: "In-Database Analytics: The Heart of the Predictive Enterprise," compliments of Aster Data (originally published in November 2009).

When: Thursday, Jan. 28, 2010 11AM PST/2PM EST
