Learn how to guarantee performance when processing volumes that are 10 to 1000 times higher

Day 3 | Thursday, April 20 | 02:15 PM – 03:15 PM

Abstract:

With all the hype, most big data initiatives at organizations have not delivered promised business value. And the number one reason is that most organizations struggle to guarantee performance as the volumes increase. This session goes beyond the various big data connectors for MicroStrategy and provides a practical design approach for using MicroStrategy as a single reporting tool on Big Data. This approach is backed up by performance statistics and a live demo. Attend this session to learn about:

  • A unified design approach for using MicroStrategy with various Hadoop options to handle growing data volumes
  • Best fit Hadoop components required to optimally store and access varying data volumes
  • Analysis of all levels of data (lowest grain to the summary level) using MicroStrategy desktop
  • The trade-offs that need to be made between performance, volume and cost
  • Real life examples of Use Cases from Retail

This session is for attendees who have started on their Big Data journey and are struggling to deliver on the promise of Big Data using MicroStrategy.
