Databases vs Hadoop vs Cloud Storage

mcknightcg

Relational databases are old technology, right? Thirty years is a long time for a technology foundation to be as active as relational databases, but, like NFL coaches, we must “tolerate them until we can replace them.” Are their replacements here? In this webinar, we say no. Databases have not sat around while Hadoop emerged. The Hadoop era generated a ton of interest and confusion, but is it still relevant as organizations are deploying cloud storage options like a kid in a candy store? We’ll discuss Hadoop’s continued potential relevance and the cloud storage option that seems vital. Use what when? This is a critical decision that can dictate two to five times additional work effort if it’s a bad fit.

Deliver Big Data and Databases as-a-Service on Kubernetes

Robin Systems, Inc

You need greater efficiency, agility, scalability, and cost-effectiveness from your IT infrastructure. Legacy storage solutions just aren’t cutting it anymore! What many IT Organizations don’t know is that there are many different solutions available to solve these IT challenges! The one thing that all businesses have in common is that they want and need IT solutions to make their lives easier, more efficient, and more affordable, particularly as digital transformation efforts take center stage. Converged, hyperconverged, composable, and other integrated platforms (collectively, integrated systems) all have the potential to accomplish these goals which can allow the IT organization to focus their efforts more on business outcomes rather than hardware.

Setting Up a Data Integration Pipeline for Repeatable Analytics Delivery

GoodData Corporation

As part of its platform, GoodData provides a fault-tolerant, high performance and scalable system for data integration. While built for large-scale analytic applications, it is a metadata-driven, modular system that can start small and grow with your business. In this session, Cameron demonstrates how to set up and schedule regular data extraction from SQL databases and other sources. He also covers some of the issues requiring attention in data extraction such as data merging and incremental loads. A future session will cover transformations and data enrichment along with data distribution.

The Software-Defined Data Center: A Foundation for Digital Transformation

tierpoint

As reported in Forbes last year, 73% of companies are planning to move to a fully software-defined data center within two years. A software-defined data center is based on a virtualized environment of compute, storage, networking and security in conjunction with policy-based management and automation. The evolution from a traditional data center architecture to one that is software-defined can take months if not years but can yield immense benefits for the business. Join us for a discussion on the progress toward the fully software-defined data center, including benefits of infrastructure as code and overcoming challenges associated with traditional workflows.

Delivering Real-Time Business Insights from ERP Data in the Cloud

Businesses succeed when they can extract more contextual, relevant, and predictive insights from ERP data in real time. ERP analytics can deliver more powerful data-driven insights if deployed in a cloud-based platform. The scalability of cloud-based data repositories—such as data lakes and data warehouses—can allow more users to concurrently query, explore, correlate, analyze, and visualize more ERP data more rapidly than would be possible on many on-premises analytics platforms.
