Organizations once waited hours, days, or even weeks to get a handle on their data. In an earlier era, that sufficed. But with today’s endless stream of zeros and ones, data must be usable right away. It’s the crux of decision making for enterprises competing in the modern era.
Recognizing cross-industry interest in massive data ingest and analytics, we teamed up with O’Reilly Media on a new book: The Path to Predictive Analytics and Machine Learning. In this book, we share the latest step...

The mobile revolution, epitomized by the rise of GPS-enabled smartphones, is transforming our lives – the way we travel, connect with like-minded people, track our goods and shipments, manage traffic congestion, get threat alerts, and hunt for Pokemon.
Many estimates place the number of smartphone subscribers at 2 billion, a number expected to grow to 6.1 billion by 2020. Each of these devices serves as a GPS-data emitting mobile sensor, providing geospatial data that can be used to track...

In 1981 the role of Chief Information Officer (CIO) first breaks onto the scene. Today, thirty five years since genesis, the responsibilities of the CIO have radically changed.

However, as today’s business needs rapidly change, so too does the role of a modern CIO.
Today, CIOs must adapt or they will get left behind with legacy...

Last month, we announced that MemSQL received the highest score in the Gartner Critical Capabilities Report for the “Operational Data Warehouse Use Case”.
While the findings Gartner shared are gratifying, this deserves a bit of a deeper dive.
For starters, let’s examine how Gartner defines an Operational Data Warehouse: “This use case manages structured data that is loaded continuously in support of embedded analytics in applications, real-time data warehousing, and operational data...

Performance analysis often gets bottlenecked by lack of visibility. At MemSQL, we architected our database to easily observe its inner workings. Observability allows our engineers to easily identify components that need to be faster. Faster components mean our database’s performance skyrockets. These tools also enable support engineers to react quickly and precisely to customer needs. In the spirit of using the best available tools to which we have access, the performance team is currently...
