Schemaless SQL: Easily Question All Data Types Through One Familiar Interface

About the Speaker:
Dr. Daniel Abadi is a recognized expert in database systems and one of the inventors of the patent-pending Adaptive Analytical Platform. He received his PhD from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where his dissertation on column-store database systems led to the founding of Vertica (acquired by Hewlett Packard). Daniel is a recipient of a Churchill Scholarship, an NSF CAREER Award, a Sloan Research Fellowship, the 2008 SIGMOD Jim Gray Doctoral Dissertation Award, and the 2007 VLDB best paper award.

Join Daniel Abadi, Co-Founder and Chief Scientist at Hadapt, for a free meet-up with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres in:

Learn how "Hadapt Flexible Schema" and "Multi-Structured Tables" are enabling analysts and BI professionals to dramatically reduce the complexity of multi-structured data analysis on Hadoop while accelerating time-to-insights by:
- Providing a queryable view of not only traditional structured data, but also non-relational data such as text, document, and key-value pair data
- Making all data types queryable via SQL, without any predefined schema or structure—"Schemaless SQL" over non-relational data stores
- Dynamically extracting hidden structure and presenting it to the end user, thereby dramatically reducing ETL
- Providing analysts with the only SQL-based solution for querying multi-structured data on Hadoop

    Thanks to Dr. Abadi for allowing the audience to bombard him with questions and his clean, crisp insight and explanation. Both the caliber of the speaker and the audience was very high and hence worth a 50 mile drive for me! There was a bit of marketing intrigue in the title of the talk - a magical mystery - but the honesty of the opening slide gave me the gist of what was to follow. When it comes to the details, Hadapt is capable of filling a need in the BI problem space but does have competing technologies to contend with. It will boil down to how fast it can be a mature offering.
