Closing the Batch Gap

Sometimes we become so accustomed to certain things, we stop asking questions and accept the status quo. That can last a long time. Such is the case with batch processing in the enterprise. And it was made abundantly clear in a survey titled “Enterprise Big Data, Business Intelligence, and Analytics Trends” by the Enterprise Strategy Group, that there remains an ongoing complacency with the time it takes to complete batch processing.

Myth Busters: Hadoop Real-time Batch Processing

Waiting sucks, as I’m sure you’d agree, and when it comes to analytics, the gravity of increasing data volumes has become a primary concern for both industry and IT professionals.  In order to deal with the volume and velocity of disparate data types, organizations have had to take an “assembly line”-like approach that requires significant batch processing. These factories are cobbled together using different software packages to ETL and transform data, which unfortunately creates...


Learn How to Build Your Own Analytic Platform

Analytic platforms can be difficult to build, even more so when you need to factor in ingestion and querying of real-time data. With so many vendors making competing and overlapping claims, it’s easy to be overwhelmed. That’s why it’s important to take a step back and consider a third-party perspective. MemSQL is hosting a webinar next week with well-respected analyst Matt Aslett of 451 Research on key criteria that enterprises should keep in mind as they build analytic platforms to...
