The infrastructure of IoT will have a real-time database behind every sensor.
Soon every device with a sensor will blend seamlessly into the Internet of Things, from drones to vehicles to wearables. Device and sensor count predictions range from billions to trillions. With this tidal wave of new devices comes an increasing number of new data streams, converging to make instant analytics on real-time data a tenant of any digital transformation.
Our penchant for instant gratification extends to...

We spent last week at the Big Data Innovation Summit in Boston. Big data trade shows, particularly those mixed with sophisticated practitioners and people seeking new solutions, are always a perfect opportunity to take a market pulse.
Here are the big 5 big data themes we encountered over the course of two days.
Real-Time Over Resuscitated Data
The action is in real time, and trade show discussions often gravitate to deriving immediate value from real-time data. All of the megatrends apply…...
In early August, a consortium of the largest German automakers including Audi, BMW, and Daimler (Mercedes) purchased Nokia’s Here mapping unit, the largest competitor to Google Maps, for $3 billion.
It is no longer easy to get lost. Quite the opposite, we expect and rely on maps for our most common Internet tasks from basic directions to on-demand transportation, discovering a new restaurant or finding a new friend.
And the battle is on between the biggest public and private companies in the...
There is no question that data is infiltrating our world. Recently 451 Research predicted that the Total Data Market is expected to double in size from $60 billion in 2014 to $115 billion in 2019.
IDC suggested that Internet of Things (IoT) spending will reach $1.7 trillion in 2020. and noted, “the real opportunity remains in the enterprise…”
And as stated in a recent Gartner blog post, while the three leading independent Hadoop distribution players measure their revenue in 10s of...

Takeaways from the Gartner Business Intelligence and Analytics Summit
Last week, MemSQL had the opportunity to participate in the Gartner Business Intelligence and Analytics Summit in Las Vegas. It was a fun chance to talk to hundreds of analytics users about their current challenges and future plans.
As an in-memory database company, we fielded questions on both sides of the analytics spectrum. Some attendees were curious about how we compared with SAP HANA, an in-memory offering at the...
Today, MemSQL is showcasing a brand new demonstration of real-time geospatial location intelligence at the Gartner Business Intelligence and Analytics Summit in Las Vegas.
The demonstration, titled Supercar, makes use of a dataset containing the details of 170 million real world taxi rides. By sampling this dataset and creating real-time records while simultaneously querying the data, Supercar simulates the ability to monitor and derive insights across hundreds of thousands of objects on the go....
A range of assumptions led to a boom in NoSQL solutions, but in the end, SQL and relational models find their way back as a critical part of data management.
In the End We Seek Structure. Why SQL and relational models are back as a critical part of data management – Click to Tweet
By the mid 2000s, 10 years into the Netscape-inspired mainstream Internet, webscale workloads were pushing the limits of conventional databases. Traditional solutions could not keep up with...
We are happy to be in New York City this week for Spark Summit East. We will be sharing more about our new geospatial capabilities, as well as the work with Esri to showcase the power of MemSQL geospatial features in conjunction with Apache Spark.
Last week we shared the preliminary release of MemSQL geospatial features introduced at the Esri Developer Summit in Palm Springs. You can read more about the live demonstration showcased at the summit here.
The demonstration uses the “Taxistats”...
