What's the latest definition of streaming analytics, and what are its applications in a cloud setting?
Oct. 20, 2016 10:00 AM
Keeping Your Head in the Clouds Is a Good Idea
We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day - more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner.
For many that's a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money - IF it's ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-time analytics there's no real-time insight, and without instant insight a company's actions are doomed to forever lag behind its changing business conditions.
That being said, keeping the smarts on the ground can quickly get expensive and too slow: enterprise data warehouses, Hadoop clusters, and relational databases need to store the data before it's analyzed, facing growing hardware and latency-related costs with each incremental change in volume.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Damian Black, CEO and Founder of SQLstream, Inc., will investigate how moving the smarts to the cloud through hybrid, distributed streaming analytics can affect the overall performance of IoT implementations, while answering the following:
- What's the latest definition of streaming analytics, and what are its applications in a cloud setting?
- How can hybrid architectures balance safety of mission-critical data and real-time value?
- What are the main areas most likely to experience rapid growth?
- What are some underexplored concerns regarding cloud implementations?
Damian Black is CEO and Founder of SQLstream, Inc. He has over twenty-five years in the software infrastructure business. He is the author of eleven patents, a massively parallel real-time data engine executing continuous SQL queries against Streaming Big Data and supporting a cloud-based architecture. He has a first class honors degree from Manchester University, which is the UK's oldest and leading computer science department, where he won the university prize awarded annually to the highest scoring computer science graduate.
