Guy Harrison and James Haight
Over the past seven years we've seen what is clearly a 3rd era in database management as the relational database hegemony has given way to a diverse set of alternatives including Hadoop, Spark, HBase, Cassandra and MongoDB, augmented by technologies such as Kafka, Drill and others. But these next generation data platforms are mutating rapidly: we're on a journey - but to where?
In this presentation the author of “Next Generation Databases” will review the forces behind the latest data revolution and extrapolate those trends into a vision for data management and preparation solutions for the next decade and look at how enterprises can best transition into the next era of data management.
Blue Hill’s James Haight will build on this discussion by exploring findings from his dedicated research study analyzing the data usage habits of data analysts. James will discuss the most frequently accessed data sources, how data analysts are spending their time, and what tools data analysts are using to accomplish their jobs. In particular, James will outline the challenges associated with data preparation. This discussion will quantify the dollars and opportunity cost associated with investing in the right data preparation solutions in the face of a fast evolving enterprise data landscape.
