Extreme Information Management - HANA, Big Data & Cloud - First Meeting Kickoff

Quick Update
Please Note - This meetup at the DC Cleveland Library has a total capacity of 90 person. Sixty slots are available ( 53 registered at the original Meetup site) given below.
I want to limit it to 30 members in the Federal Big Data Meetup Site. I do not have any way to control the meetup limit/wailtist in the Federal Big Data Meetup.
So if the count of members attending is 30 in the Federal Big Data Meetup , please do not sign up here . Please try the original site and register there to attend or be on a waitlist.

Thank you very much for understanding,
Sridhar Mahadevan

Overview of Content
Given the emergence of Big Data and In-Memory Databases, organizations are looking to accelerate the processing of large amounts of data to drive near real-time decision making. We will share a case study of a large analytics system implementation that required the ability to match incoming payloads in excess of 100 million records to a database with potentially over 300 million rows in near real-time. We will share the high-level requirements, constraints and chosen architecture path as well as lessons learnt.
