An Architecture for the IoT – Part 1

There are so many things in the Internet of Things (IoT) that might record data into your data fabric that a new approach may be required. Let’s think about this… define some terms, and see how these terms fit into current data fabric thinking, let’s consider how they fit into a more modern logical data warehouse…

Part 8 – How Hadooped is SQL Server PDW with Polybase?

Now for SQL Server… continuing the thread on RDBMS-Hadoop integration (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7) I have suggested that we could evaluate integration architecture using three criteria: How parallel are the pipes to move data between the RDBMS and the parallel file system; Is there intelligence to push down predicates; and Is…

Part 6: How Hadooped is HANA?

Now for HANA plus Hadoop… to continue this thread on RDBMS-Hadoop integration (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5) I have suggested that we could evaluate integration architecture using three criteria: How parallel are the pipes to move data between the RDBMS and the parallel file system; Is there intelligence to push…

Part 1: How Hadooped is Your RDBMS?

Sorry for the comic adjective “Hadooped”? The next few blogs will try to evaluate the different approaches to integrating Hadoop and a standard RDBMS… so the first thing I’ll try in this post is to suggest a criteria based on some architectural  choices for making the evaluation. Further, I’ll inject a little surprise and make…

The Hype of Big Data

As preface to this you might check out the definition I suggested for Big Data last week here… – Rob I left Greenplum in large part because they made their mark in… and then abandoned… the  data warehouse market for a series of big hype plays: first analytics and data science; then analytics, data science,…
