3:00 P.M. - 3:45 P.M.  Session 2

Title : SGI DataRaptor for Information Intelligence

Speaker : Sanhita Sarkar, PhD, Director of Engineering, SGI


Abstract : One of the biggest challenges with Big Data today is to search for valuable information across many different data types from disparate systems. Existing search solutions usually can’t provide a unified view of all data types, diverse data formats and unanticipated new information, thus making it difficult to make immediate decisions. Additionally, given the large influx of social media, loading information as it arrives followed by indexing, searching, navigating, updating and moving content and data in an agile and decisive manner within an enterprise is another big hurdle. With the growing need for users to capture heterogeneous information quickly and leverage Big Data analytics to discover trends and patterns in near-real time, the requirement for speed and scale of the total solution is becoming critical. Organizations not only need high performance features to ingest content and data quickly but also desire the ability to scale their growing data inside a “single” infrastructure in a cost-effective manner.

This session describes “DataRaptor”, a content management platform delivered by SGI as an appliance, and factory-integrated with a MarkLogic NoSQL database, thus allowing customers to build and run their mission-critical applications for search, retrieval and complex analytics for information intelligence.

Speaker Bio : Sanhita Sarkar, Director of Engineering of SGI, is responsible for delivering Big Data Solutions involving Hadoop, Databases, BI/Visualization, and Data Management technologies. Prior to SGI, Sanhita was at Oracle responsible for RDBMS performance, system architectures, and solutions. Sanhita holds a Ph.D from the University of Minnesota, is an active board member of various conference program committees, and is an author of many papers and publications.

3:45 P.M. - 4:00 P.M.  Q/A
