      from Global Big Data Conference / Added

      Topic : Analytics and Data Visualization at Boeing - Application of Analytics (e.g., Visual, Text, Predictive) to Industry Problems and Challenges Abstract : Application of advanced analytics to industrial problems in aerospace include areas ranging from maintenance, reliability, material sciences, workplace safety, airplane safety, supply chain management, and factory floor quality. These challenges require addressing such things as defining the problem, identifying, acquiring, cleaning, structuring the data from multiple sources & formats, and more importantly communicating the results. In this presentation we will discuss selection of the appropriate analysis methods (e.g., paired-analysis) and tools (e.g., Tableau, IN-SPIRE, Starlight, SPSS, SAS, R, and Python) as well as challenges in finding resources with the required technical skills (technology & data structures), analytical skills to perform the analysis while managing stakeholder expectations.

      • Moshe Shadmon( Founder & CTO, ScaleDB) Hadoop & Beyond Track Sep9 : Real Time Analytics for Big Data and Time Series Data VOD


        from Global Big Data Conference / Added

        Moshe Shadmon( Founder & CTO, ScaleDB) Topic : Real Time Analytics for Big Data and Time Series Data Abstract : ScaleDB provides an elastic, scale-out data management solution for structured data. What Hadoop did for unstructured data we have accomplished for structured data using standard SQL. Ideal for cloud, hybrid-cloud or on-prem, our standards based Big Data system can be deployed quickly using PaaS and OpenStack. This talk includes A LIVE DEMO showing 1.5 million inserts/second of time series data (the inserts update indexes and are saved to disk) while analyzing the data stream in next to real-time. We will then demonstrate a unified repository on our storage nodes with historical and operational data. Then the capability of ad-hoc joins across streaming, historical and operational data in real-time using SQL across billions of rows. This unique capability operates on two tiers of commodity hardware: a database tier (a collection of MySQL database nodes) and a storage tier. Users achieve elastic scale-out by simply adding database nodes and storage nodes dynamically as their computing needs require. Profile : Moshe Shadmon is the founder and CTO of ScaleDB. Moshe has more than 20 years of experience in both technical and management roles. Moshe’s technical experience has been in the areas of database clustering, high performance indexing solutions as well as the development of a unified solution for structured and semi-structured data. Moshe founded ScaleDB in 2006 to develop a database platform that would efficiently manage big data. ScaleDB offers a clustered, disk based database platform with MySQL/MariaDB as the interface. With ScaleDB, multiple database instances operate over shared data and scaling is done by adding database instances to the cluster without the need to shard the data. Special optimizations for time series data support BI type of queries at a next to real time performance.

          http://www.kpipartners.com So, your global enterprise has collected some data. And I’m not talking small data, like a couple of spreadsheets, I'm talking big data, like mountains of point-of-sale transactions, video feeds, website statistics, social media posts, image metadata, and more. Not gigabytes or terabytes but exabytes of data. How do you start to make sense of all this raw data? Well, you could just take a sample of the data and process it with the resources you already have.... But, you would only have visibility into that small sample in which to make important decisions. That’s were KPI comes in. They create tools for companies to easily analyze their big data to get quick insights. In short KPI transforms data into insight.
