PolySpot Enables Information Access for Analysts and Business Management
January 28, 2013
The decline in the pricing of RAM and the popularity of cloud computing in conjunction with the need for faster queries has produced a multitude of options for enterprise organizations to increase productivity and efficiency. O’Reilly Radar discusses the demand for technology and tools that facilitate interactive query performance. The article “Need Speed for Big Data? Think In-Memory Data Management” explains how these tools lead to real-time communication and reports.
The article informs us about interactive query performance:
Faster query response times translate to more engaged and productive analysts, and real-time reports. Over the past two years several in-memory solutions emerged to deliver 5X-100X faster response times. A recent paper from Microsoft Research noted that even in this era of big data and Hadoop, many MapReduce jobs fit in the memory of a single server. To scale to extremely large datasets several new systems use a combination of distributed computing (in-memory grids), compression, and (columnar) storage technologies.
We have seen an increase in the amount of technologies available to address engagement and productivity issues in the workplace, but there are none that we have seen to match the user experience and infrastructure technology of PolySpot. This solution enables information access while maintaining data integrity and adding semantic enrichment. What more could an analyst or a decision-maker want?
