Analyze-then-Store: The Journey to Continuous Intelligence – Part 5

This multi-part article series by our friends at Swim is intended for data architects and anyone else interested in learning how to design modern real-time data analytics solutions. It explores key principles and implications of event streaming and streaming analytics, and concludes that the biggest opportunity to derive meaningful value from data – and gain continuous intelligence about the state of things – lies in the ability to analyze, learn and predict from real-time events in concert with contextual, static and dynamic data. This article series places continuous intelligence in an architectural context, with reference to established technologies and use cases in place today.

Interview: Global Technology Leader PNY

We recently caught up with our friends over at PNY to discuss a variety of topics affecting data scientists conducting work on big data problem domains including how “Big Data” is becoming increasingly accessible with big clusters with disk-based databases, small clusters with in-memory data, single systems with in-CPU-memory data, and single systems with in-GPU-memory data. Answering our inquiries were: Bojan Tunguz, Senior System Software Engineer, NVIDIA and Carl Flygare, NVIDIA Quadro Product Marketing Manager, PNY.

Why Databases are Failing the Modern Economy

In this contributed article, industry luminary Andrew “Flip” Filipowski discusses the state of database technology in terms of how in spite of the massive increase in demand for data, the industry never underwent a complete overhaul of the way databases work. Instead, programmers have used patchwork retrofitting to adjust databases to modern-day needs, solving problems with countless point solutions instead of rethinking the way databases work from the ground up.
