Level:  Technical - Introductory

How NoSQL systems can facilitate building analytics and business intelligence applications through some real-world examples. Analytics is a huge driver of interest and applications in Big Data.

We'd cover:

  • How NOSQL fits alongside tools like data warehouses and Hadoop - velocity, vs variety
  • How organisations are using NOSQL, especially for real-time analytics
  • What different NOSQL systems provide as building blocks
  • Examples of users who've taken this route and their experiences

Tim Moreton is Founder and CTO at Acunu, which offers real-time Big Data analytics software built over Apache Cassandra. Tim holds a PhD in Computer Science from Cambridge University, where he worked on the forerunners of today's NoSQL systems. He has spoken at NoSQL NOW 2011, O'Reilly Strata, GigaOM Structure Big Data, AllYourBase NOSQL conference, Cassandra EU, Big Data London and numerous other events.
