The Power of Presto for Analytics and Business Intelligence (BI)

Presented by

Goden Yao, Principal Product Manager at Qubole

About this talk

Presto is a distributed ANSI SQL engine designed for running interactive analytics queries. Presto outshines other data processing engines when used for business intelligence (BI) or data discovery because of its ability to join terabytes of unstructured and structured data in seconds, or cache queries intermittently for a rapid response upon later runs. Presto can also be used in place of other well known interactive open source query engine such as Impala, Hive or traditional SQL data warehouses. Qubole Presto, a cloud-optimized version of open source Presto, allows for dynamic cluster sizing based on workload, and terminates idle clusters — ensuring high reliability while reducing compute costs. Qubole customers use Presto along with their favorite BI tools, including PowerBI, Looker, Tableau, or any ODBC- and JDBC-compliant BI tool, to explore data and run queries. In this webinar, you’ll learn: - Why Presto is better suited for ad-hoc queries than other engines like Apache Spark - How to jumpstart analysts across your organization to harness the power of your big data - How to generate interactive or ad hoc queries or scheduled reports using Qubole and Presto - Real-world examples of companies using Presto
