A talk given at the August, 2013 NoSQL Now! conference in San Jose, California.
2013 is the year of that SQL meets Hadoop & NoSQL. There is a surprisingly good fit between thirty-something SQL and the upstart millennial data technologies. SQL helps you deliver faster value, improve integration with visualization and analytics tools, and bring your data to a larger audience.
Julian Hyde, author of Mondrian and Optiq, and a contributor to Apache Drill and Cascading Lingual, shows how to quickly build a SQL interface to a NoSQL system using the Optiq framework.
As a case study, he shows how Optiq has allows the Mondrian in-memory analysis engine (part of Pentaho's business intelligence suite) to leverage the memory and compute power of a cluster and pull data from hybrid SQL and NoSQL sources.
