The Briefing Room with Krish Krishnan and Teradata
Live Webcast on Dec. 4, 2012
The current Holy Grail of analytical systems is the Unified Data Architecture: a management layer that connects people and systems to all the appropriate information sources, both structured and unstructured, across the entire enterprise. The idea is to provide a strategic view of information assets, ideally with an intelligent metadata layer that helps users align salient data sets, thus enabling a big-picture perspective that fosters insight, collaboration and improvement.
Check out this episode of The Briefing Room to hear veteran Analyst Krish Krishnan explain why we're closer than ever to achieving this holistic perspective for data assets. He'll be briefed by Imad Birouty of Teradata, who will tout his company's Unity offering, a management environment for connecting Teradata systems of all shapes and sizes. He'll explain how Unity allows users to navigate through complex information architectures, route queries to specific data sources, even access Big Data in Hadoop via AsterSQL. Birouty will also offer a sneak peek at Shark, a new project spun out of the Kickfire acquisition, which promises super-high performance queries on specific workloads.
