Single Access, Multiple Benefits

Businesses of all sizes and sectors are wallowing in an increasingly complex flood of information without being able to make sense of it. A recent IDC survey of IT buyers showed they are eager to fix the information quandary by investing in solutions that provide a single access point to all their information silos and advanced predictive and analytical technologies that support their automation processes, enable them to make better capital investment decisions, and help them to optimize their business decisions continuously using near-realtime data.

Business intelligence is changing rapidly as the world around us. Excellent analytical knowledge of internal processes, products and organization is far from enough to successfully run the business. Combining internal data with external ones provides environment for better decisions. Presentation will show the treasure of social networks data like Facebook, how can they be extracted and integrated with existing corporate data.

HP Vertica Analytics System: the solution for 'big data' analytics

Big data is here now and is growing exponentially. With the right technology, businesses can harness structured and unstructured big data for a strategic advantage. A solution designed from the ground up to manage big data can support analytics for superior tactical and operational decisions and ultimately for increased profits. The session will provide guidance on the technical approach that HP has taken to manage customers' big data requirements. Attendees will learn how a scale-out, shared-nothing approach using low-cost standards-based blade servers running on Intel ® Xeon ® Processors and Linux is superior to architectures that use proprietary dated designs. Session participants will learn how column-store architecture is faster than row-based, how the use of aggressive compression means reduced storage costs, how concurrent loading and querying means no need for batch loading or slowing down to load data, and how the inherent high-availability design protects your big data.
