Rittman Mead BI Forum – Big Data
By Jean-Pierre Dijcks-Oracle on Mar 22, 2011
Apart from ODTUG, more in a next post, I am one of the lucky people getting to attend and speak at the Rittman Mead BI Forum. A lot of good sessions are coming to either Atlanta (where I'll be at) and Brighton for those in EMEA.
The event is very much an expert meeting on BI, discussing Oracle BI implementations, best practices and other good things to know around BI and DW-ing. Apart from the master class OBI EE, the forum delivers 2 days of cool sessions.
More information on the event (there are still a limited number of seats left!) have a look over on the Rittman Mead blog. As part of the Forum registration, you will also get the opportunity to join ODTUG for a special rate, which in turn allows for fun thing at the ODTUG KScope conference (where the cool kids hang out)...
As everyone is covering BI at this forum, I figured I can give them an idea of my take on Big Data and how to leverage Oracle in that world.
We will be talking about a couple of things, even touching on OBI EE and its ability to reach out to distributed data sets, that would make a Big Data solution highly performing. One of the interesting elements there is the in-memory parallel computing available to any DB EE customer today. Another is the idea of sandboxing and trying out advanced analytics on massive, ad-hoc data sets (think mash-up like ideas). Since there is no paper going to go along with the slides, you can read my ideas on or around the conference on this blog. But it would of course be even better if you actually go and watch it all in Atlanta.
