The Briefing Room with Robin Bloor and Cirro
Live Webcast on Dec. 11, 2012
As the information landscape expands with all kinds of Big Data, businesses are searching for ways to unite their traditional analytics with this new source of insight. One ambitious approach involves federating access to multiple data sources, even across various operating systems. The idea is to take analytic processing to the data, then intelligently assemble the results for a business user. Could this be the long-awaited alternative to data virtualization?
Check out this episode of The Briefing Room to hear veteran Analyst Robin Bloor explain how federated access to data sources can pave the way for a truly integrated data fabric. Bloor will be briefed by Mark Theissen of Cirro, who will tout his company's patent-pending Data Hub, which simplifies data access by federating queries across multiple sources of structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data. He'll discuss Cirro's cost based optimizer, smart caching, dynamic query plan re-optimization, normalization of cost estimates and a metadata repository for unstructured data sources.
