Production-ready orchestration for data-intensive applications

Joe Goldberg, Evangelist, BMC Software Inc.

View Profile

Big Data projects and Data Pipelines have merged into the technology fabric of every organization. They are no longer unicorn projects that get special dispensation when it comes to “conventional” enterprise rigor. The tools for building and running application workflows must be not only easily versionable and testable but they must also provide access to business and non-technical users. They must deliver the operational richness required to operate complex applications with business service levels and integrate conventional applications like ERP\’s and similar mission-critical core business functions. This session discusses the requirements for operating modern, data-intensive business services at production scale.

Can’t see the wood for the trees?

Rob Cowell, Principal Technologist, Pyramid Analytics

View Profile

Data consolidation has helped centralize information, but for dynamic businesses that target is always in motion. Analytic platforms need the capability to integrate data as soon as it is generated, providing a consolidated view of the business, while formal, physical consolidation is likely to lag behind organisational needs. But improving federation techniques, through advanced software platforms, have also highlighted the importance of simple, granular security frameworks, ensuring everyone gets the data they need, described in a way that is relevant to them, without being overwhelmed by information that places the burden of curation onto the end user.

Pyramid Analytics is a single platform that allows you to manage the analytic interface to all your data sources and present a relevant, meaningful view to each individual in your organisation. In this presentation we will look at how you can easily define focused views on your organisations data giving your end users trusted, self-service analytic capabilities where and when they need them.
