Talk #1: Addressing the Systemic Shortcomings of Cloud Analytics
As we enter what some have called The Golden Age of Analytics, there are still some fundamental challenges that plague even the largest and most sophisticated cloud analytics adopters. Chief among these is the challenge of scale, often reflected in limitations of concurrency, multi-tenancy, distributed query performance, and all manner of latencies.
Other less obvious, but equally crucial, challenges of scale and performance have to do with IT and end-user productivity. In other words, there have been few technological advances that enable the quick deployment of big data analytics and the rapid creation of business value from the data being analyzed.
This presentation will consider a few of these systemic challenges and suggest some ways that they can be addressed with available open source technology such as Apache Kylin, Apache Spark, and Apache Mondrian.
