Independent research firm Knowledge Integrity Inc. examine two high performance computing technologies that are transitioning into the mainstream: high performance massively parallel analytical database management systems (ADBMS) and distributed parallel programming paradigms, such as MapReduce, (Hadoop, Pig, and HDFS, etc.). By providing an overview of both concepts and looking at how the two approaches can be used together, they conclude that combining a high performance batch programming and execution model with an high performance analytical database provides significant business benefits for a number of different types of applications.

In the era of big data, enterprise data warehouse (EDW) technology continues to evolve as vendors focus on innovation and advanced features around in-memory, compression, security, and tighter integration with Hadoop, NoSQL, and cloud. Forrester identified the 10 most significant EDW software and services providers — Actian, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, Pivotal Software, SAP, Snowflake Computing, and Teradata — in the category and researched, analyzed, and scored them. This report details our findings about how well each vendor fulfills our criteria and where they stand in relation to each other to help enterprise architect professionals select the right solution to support their data warehouse platform.
When designed well, a data lake is an effective data-driven design pattern for capturing a wide range of data types, both old and new, at large scale. By definition, a data lake is optimized for
the quick ingestion of raw, detailed source data plus on-the-fly processing of such data for exploration, analytics, and operations. Even so, traditional, latent data practices are possible, too.
Organizations are adopting the data lake design pattern (whether on Hadoop or a relational database) because lakes provision the kind of raw data that users need for data exploration and
discovery-oriented forms of advanced analytics. A data lake can also be a consolidation point for both new and traditional data, thereby enabling analytics correlations across all data. With the
right end-user tools, a data lake can enable the self-service data practices that both technical and business users need. These practices wring business value from big data, other new data sources, and burgeoning enterprise da

This ebook is recommended for IT managers, developers, data analysts, system architects, and similar technical workers, who are faced with having to replace current systems and skills with the new set required by NoSQL and Hadoop, or those who want to deepen their understanding of complementary technologies and databases.

These traditional analytical systems are often based on a classic pattern where data from multiple operational systems is captured, cleaned, transformed and integrated before loading it into a data warehouse.
Different types of data have different data retention requirements. In establishing information governance and database archiving policies, take a holistic approach by understanding where the data exists, classifying the data, and archiving the data. IBM InfoSphere Optim™ Archive solution can help enterprises manage and support data retention policies by archiving historical data and storing that data in its original business context, all while controlling growing data volumes and improving application performance. This approach helps support long-term data retention by archiving data in a way that allows it to be accessed independently of the original application.
There is a lot of discussion in the press about Big Data. Big Data is traditionally defined in terms of the three V’s of Volume, Velocity, and Variety. In other words, Big Data is often characterized as high-volume, streaming, and including semi-structured and unstructured formats.
Healthcare organizations have produced enormous volumes of unstructured data, such as the notes by physicians and nurses in electronic medical records (EMRs). In addition, healthcare organizations produce streaming data, such as from patient monitoring devices. Now, thanks to emerging technologies such as
Hadoop and streams, healthcare organizations are in a position to harness this Big Data to reduce costs and improve patient outcomes. However, this Big Data has profound implications from an Information Governance perspective. In this white paper, we discuss Big Data Governance from the standpoint of three case studies.
With the advent of big data, organizations worldwide are attempting to use data and analytics to solve problems previously out of their reach. Many are applying big data and analytics to create competitive advantage within their markets, often focusing on building a thorough understanding of their customer base.
IBM InfoSphere Information Server connects to many new ‘at rest’ and streaming big data sources, scales natively on Hadoop using partition and pipeline parallelism, automates data profiling, provides a business glossary, and an information catalog, plus also supports IT.
Learn why advanced analytics tools are essential to sustain a competitive advantage. This white paper reveals seven strategic objectives that can be attained to their full potential only by employing predictive analytics.
