  • How Online Analytical Processing is Rising From the Ashes in the Cloud Era Sep 29 2021 5:00 pm UTC 61 mins
    Li Kang - Head of Americas
    While exotic analytics and machine learning have captured the imagination during the big data era, Online Analytical Processing (OLAP) seemed to be on the verge of decline. As traditional OLAP platforms and vendors struggled with growing data volumes, the seemingly unlimited power and scale of the cloud offered new ways to extract insights from these large datasets.

    But new open source technologies like Apache Kylin promise to bring the performance, concurrency, and cost advantages of distributed OLAP to the cloud. In this webinar, Li Kang will demonstrate and discuss:

    -Key performance and concurrency advantages of Distributed OLAP vs Cloud Data Warehousing
    -How precomputed aggregate indexes (distributed cubes) can dramatically offload query processing engines
    -How Apache Kylin enables aggregate indexes of virtually limitless size and scale
  • Excel, Data Discovery, and Snowflake: Unhappy Together Recorded: Sep 15 2021 62 mins
    Robert Hardaway, Senior Solutions Architect
    12 not so simple steps to enabling Excel for data discovery

    Microsoft is a recognized leader for BI tools and analytics platforms and there are hundreds of millions of Excel users. Snowflake has captured everyone’s imagination as the Cloud Data Warehouse juggernaut. So why are they not completely happy together?

    In this webinar you will learn:
    -The painful process of data discovery using Excel and Snowflake
    -How Kyligence Cloud enables Excel pivot tables against Snowflake environments
    -What MDX means to the future of cloud analytics

    We will discuss the 12 unhappy steps you must take to make Excel play nice with Snowflake in data discovery. We will also talk about how Apache Kylin and Kyligence Cloud can be used to make the misery go away, and how you can finally run Excel pivot tables directly against Snowflake data and make them so happy together!
  • Kyligence Cloud 4.5 - Feature Focus: Smart Tiered Storage Recorded: Sep 8 2021 39 mins
    Mike Shen, Senior Solution Architect
    Are you looking to ask more “what if...” questions of your largest datasets but have to go out to lunch and back before you get an answer? Ad hoc exploration is one of the foundational capabilities of business intelligence, and yet asking these important questions can be a painful experience.

    To address this, Kyligence Cloud 4.5 features Smart Tiered Storage, which expands our ability to accelerate ad hoc exploration in addition to the sub-second query response times delivered by Apache Kylin. The newest storage tier is ClickHouse - an open source high-performance OLAP database that accelerates what-if analytics and ad hoc queries.

    This talk will include:
    -Challenges of ad hoc exploration with very large datasets
    -How Smart Tiered Storage works in Kyligence Cloud 4.5
    -Introduction to Clickhouse, the high-performance open source OLAP database
    -How Apache Kylin and Clickhouse interact with Smart Tiered Storage

  • Open Source Technologies in the Analytics Revolution Recorded: Sep 1 2021 27 mins
    Zitong Wei and Rachel Beddor, Solution Engineers
    One of the hallmarks of modern analytics is that data pipelines are largely built upon open source software (OSS). It is entirely possible to create cutting edge data science, machine learning, data engineering, ETL processing, and predictive analytics pipelines without using any commercial software. Of course, OSS does not necessarily mean “free,” but as a thought experiment, the first part of this session will explore the role of OSS in your data analytics stacks and data pipelines.

    For the second half of this discussion, we will examine how OSS tools and platforms can be used to learn and create your own machine learning and data analytics projects without breaking the bank.

  • Architecting Snowflake for High Concurrency and High Performance Recorded: Aug 19 2021 62 mins
    Robert Hardaway, Senior Solutions Architect
    Cloud Data Warehousing juggernaut Snowflake has raced out ahead of the pack to deliver a data management platform from which a wealth of new analytics can be run. Using Snowflake as a traditional data warehouse has some obvious cost advantages over a hardware solution. But the real value of Snowflake as a data platform lies in its ability to support a high-concurrency analytics platform using Kyligence Cloud, powered by Apache Kylin.

    In this webinar, Senior Solutions Architect Robert Hardaway will describe a modern data service architecture using precomputation and distributed indexes to provide interactive analytics to hundreds or even thousands of users running against very large Snowflake datasets (TBs to PBs).

  • Addressing the Systemic Shortcomings of Cloud Analytics Recorded: Aug 5 2021 83 mins
    Kaige Liu, Sr. Solutions Architect
    Learn how to increase the value of your analytics investment with existing open source technologies like Apache Kylin, Spark, and Mondrian.

    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.

    Talk #2: Accelerating Linux Workload Onboarding Experience on Azure

    Whether you run Linux or Windows, Azure has unlimited capacity to deliver tangible benefits with built in security, hybrid infrastructure, data analysis and intelligence to support your Linux and Open Source Software (OSS) workloads. Our partnership with companies like Kyligence is one of our key strengths.

    In this talk, we will talk about how Azure supports the OSS ecosystem, and how it empowers customers and partners to build their solutions on Azure.
  • Apache Kylin: Simplify Machine Learning on Big Data Recorded: Jul 29 2021 39 mins
    Dong Li - Director of Product, Kyligence
    Apache Kylin is an open source analytical data warehouse that has made interactive big data analytics possible. It does so by combining data warehouse and big data technology and by providing a standard ANSI-SQL query interface and sub-second latency for petabyte-scale datasets. This solution has been widely adopted around the world.

    Kylin also enables self-service data analysis for machine learning applications. The integration with auto machine learning technology means that users don't need to be experts in big data and machine learning technology.

    Dong will introduce the architecture and demonstrate how Apache Kylin has simplified machine learning on big data and empowered each end-user to perform advanced self-service analytics.

  • Kyligence Cloud 4 - Feature Focus: Spark-Powered Cubing and Indexing Recorded: Jun 9 2021 38 mins
    Mike Shen, Senior Solution Architect
    You’ve moved your data to the cloud, awesome. Now you’re running into issues of concurrency, scale, and cost overruns. But there’s a better way to run your cloud analytics if you think of cloud resources as commodities to conserve and maximize. Sure, you could run the same query from start to finish every time, or you could speed up this process, and save some cash in the process, by precomputing those queries and storing the response for fast retrieval any time, by any number of analysts.

    Kyligence Cloud 4’s Spark-Powered Cubing and Indexing feature provides just that - intelligent precomputation, which fundamentally boils down to low-cost, high-performance analytics. Join us for the fourth part of this series exploring the key features of Kyligence Cloud 4.

    In this webinar you will learn:
    -About modern, cloud era OLAP and cubing theory
    -Performance gains you’ll get from intelligent precomputation
    -How to apply cloud computing and distributed processing
    -Precomputation strategies and tactics
