Transforming to a Data-Driven Enterprise Becomes Priority in a Time of Big Data Analytics

Share Article

The explosion of information available from various sources prompts businesses of all sizes across a variety of industries to assess their infrastructure options. Scalable solutions that couple the Big Data paradigm with a NoSQL database may be the best answer.

As businesses tire of the constraints of rigid, structured solutions, we are learning to embrace the technology that is changing that equation and introducing us to the flexibility of a schema-less database.

With the explosion of available information and businesses continually generating and ingesting an unprecedented volume of data, most companies are taking a hard look at the environment and reviewing options for the infrastructure they need moving forward. Processing and parsing extremely high volumes of data in real-time is not just a concern, but also a necessity.

As the industry approaches “the wall” in terms of scalability with relational databases, it is becoming clear that the key to success is to eliminate the barrier of imposing relational structure on analytics data. Mapping all this data to a data model in memory or low latency, while also preserving the mapped data and handling ad hoc requests, clearly requires a scalable solution and one that couples the ‘Big Data’ paradigm with a NoSQL database.

The purpose of just such a scalable solution is to meet four specific criteria: Volume (be able to handle more data than ever before); Variety (address the fact that there are more sources and many forms of data, including unstructured, semi-structured and multi-structured); Velocity (proceed with the unprecedented speed of throughput that is necessary to meet the demands of a secure environment); and, Vitality (offer the agility required to adapt quickly to ever-changing business needs.)

To help organizations of all sizes further understand the challenges and to learn more about the solutions in today’s data-rich setting, Joe Caserta, President of Caserta Concepts, will be presenting his view of the data realities and the infrastructure that is needed at Enterprise Data World 2014 Conference and Expo (EDW 2014). In his presentation, “Zero Latency Analytics in NoSQL,” Joe will introduce NoSQL databases, and discuss their capability for scaling far beyond traditional relational databases.

EDW 2014 is being held at the Renaissance Austin Hotel in Austin, TX April 27 – May 1st. The 5 full-day agenda features more than 120 industry leading speakers, and more than 800 senior-level attendees ranging from Chief Data Officers to Data and Enterprise Architects. The 8 in-depth Education tracks include a full compliment of sessions on Big Data, New Data Management Technologies and Analytics and Business Intelligence, among others. Joe’s presentation is scheduled for Wednesday, April 30th 9:30-10:15am.

I am pleased to have the opportunity to talk about the transformation of an industry,” said Caserta. “As businesses tire of the constraints of rigid, structured solutions, we are learning to embrace the technology that is changing that equation and introducing us to the flexibility of a schema-less database.”
