The Race for a Unified Analytics Warehouse

This white paper, “The Race for a Unified Analytics Warehouse,” from our friends over at Vertica discusses how the race for a unified analytics warehouse is on. The data warehouse has been around for almost three  decades. Shortly after big data platforms were introduced in the late 2000s, there was talk that the data  warehouse was dead—but it never went away. When big data platform vendors realized that the data warehouse was here to stay, they started building databases on top of their file system and conceptualizing a  data lake that would replace the data warehouse. It never did.

Unify Your Analytics, and Keep Your Data Where It Suits You

In this sponsored post, Joy King, VP, Vertica Product Management & Product Marketing, believes that we need to stop our fixation with “data in one place.” The days of the single data repository are behind us. If you try doing that, you’ll incur so much data management time and cost that you’ll squander the savings even before you even get to the analysis stage. To put it simply, the goal is to unify, analyze, and act, because predictive analytics and proactive action is the definition of business success.

Atomicus Chart Software Brings Easy Analytics to Scientists

ISV vendor Atomicus is approaching the release of an advanced software component AtomicusChart developed for scientists researching physical, chemical, biological phenomena and for those who need a convenient tool to present the results in scientific formats. “The ATOMICUS CHART is a product from Atomicus, which can be re-used and integrated in any software requiring high-speed graphics for large volumes of data (including big data) and dedicated to the needs of analytical applications.”

How Deep Learning is Causing a ‘Seismic Shift’ in the Retail Industry

 These days, taking big data further and integrating machine and deep learning means having a competitive edge in the retail industry. Analytics — and their analysis — have always been a cornerstone of retail success. And now, deep learning techniques are going to push the data boom to the next level. A new insideHPC special report, courtesy of Dell EMC and NVIDIA, explores how the retail industry is being transformed by machine and deep learning.

Genome Analytics Driving a Healthcare Revolution

Next-generation sequencing methods are empowering doctors and researchers to improve their ability to treat diseases, predict and prevent diseases before they occur, and personalize treatments to specific patient profiles. “With this increase in knowledge comes a tidal wave of data. Genomic data is growing so quickly that scientists are predicting that this data will soon take the lead as the largest data category in the world, eventually creating more digital information than astronomy, particle physics and even popular Internet sites like YouTube.”

Analytics: Managing Data Chaos

Analytics is becoming increasingly important for industrial companies. With good results too – a simple and brief web search on the topic will reveal case after case of $1 million plus in cost savings. On the other side of that coin is the burden traditional analytics approaches have taken on IT organizations.
