The Briefing Room with Robin Bloor and Actian
Slides from the Live Webcast on May 8, 2012
Getting into an analytical rhythm requires more than just data and time. One of the key ingredients is speed, specifically, the ability to ask questions of your data in a conversational fashion. This has traditionally been the domain of Operational Data Stores or OLAP cubes, but there are new options today that don't rely so heavily on the kind of maintenance necessary to keep those solutions humming. Today, there are specialized database technologies that can fuel conversational analytics.
Check out this episode of The Briefing Room to learn from 30-year IT Analyst Robin Bloor, Ph.D., who will chart the evolution of specialty database technology. He'll explain how vector-based processing in particular changes the game of analytics. Bloor will be briefed by Fred Gallagher of Actian, who will discuss the technical advantages of the Actian Vectorwise database, including vector-based processing, on-chip memory optimization, parallel execution, column-based storage and self-optimizing compression.
