Kognitio will showcase how firms are building, creating and benefiting from large-scale analytic environments in the cloud to drive their businesses forward.

In-memory analytics pioneer Kognitio today announced that Roger Llewellyn, CEO and President, will speak at the forthcoming SNW conference, taking place October 10-13 at the JW Marriott Grande Lakes resort in Orlando, Florida. SNW is the world’s largest storage, data center and IT infrastructure conference.

In his presentation, Mr. Llewellyn will showcase how firms are building, creating and benefiting from large-scale analytic environments in the cloud to drive their businesses forward. He will also discuss the elements that define successful analytic cloud deployments and how they differ from applications that are run in the cloud. Mr. Llewellyn will also talk about the need to deliver on performance, scalability and cost, and how the use of cloud-based data environments is becoming increasingly essential if organizations want to be agile and responsive to market demands.

Kognitio is a pioneer in cloud-based analytics and data warehousing. By running data warehousing solutions in the cloud, global organizations from various sectors such as BT, American Access Insurance, Kelkoo, Match2Lists.com and ScottishPower have benefited from high-speed analytics that is available on-demand on a pay-as-you-use model. Instead of having to find large capital expenditure budgets (CapEx) to fund the purchase and implementation of on-premise data warehousing solutions, companies can leverage Kognitio’s cloud-based warehousing environments that can be accessed and paid for via a monthly subscription-based model. As a result, Kognitio’s cloud-based environments allow companies to focus on innovation instead of infrastructure.

Mr. Llewellyn’s presentation “How Analytic Clouds Differ from Application Clouds” will take place on October 12 at 3pm EDT.
